Default keep corporate/personal contacts separate

Please Login to Remove!

Currently a Q user (hate it), and have been looking at the BB Pearl.

Right now on the Q i'm using Good Mobile Messaging, which lets me keep my work stuff isolated from my personal stuff. Work email/contacts/calendar all sync up over GMM, and then I sync my personal contacts/calendar off my Macbook Pro (which get stored in the Outlook calendar/contacts on the Q) via Missing Sync.

I've done some searching, but I can't find any real definite answer on whether I'd be able to do the same with a Pearl (or any BB). I'd be using BES for work, but I also want to be able to sync my personal contacts/calendar of my Mac, and keep them separate (using Missing Sync or whatever). I don't want to have to merge it all. With WM5 (and Palm for that matter) devices you can keep everything isolated if you use GMM.

Is this doable on BB?

Appreciate the help Really want to ditch this Q, its horrible and locks up non stop with Good on it.

No, it's not possible on the blackberry.
You can filter contacts by category, but you can't have more than one address book (or calendar) on the device.

Only knowledge i have on this is that bb's use categories filters. You can view one or the other or both. i would say that dm does not actually distinguish between the 2. i am not sure how syncing is handled with outlook, there may be a way to do it. But i am not even sure that your Mac will provide full support for a BB

I was going to handle the mac sync via Missing Sync. I currently use it for my WM5 based Q and it works quite well. Really all I use it for is syncing contacts/calendar, and it backs up my device pretty nicely. You can do more with it, but thats really all I need. Good handles all my corporate contacts/email/etc OTA.

If I can't separate my work/personal stuff I might be stuck with the Q. I wonder if I can turn of calendar/contact sync. I guess I will keep searching for a phone replacement.

Thanks for the responses!

You might want to check out the MAC section of the forum as well, if you haven't found it already. Should be some useful info there too.
