Unhappy Blackberry versus Microsoft Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

I have a problem! My problem is that the Contacts list in my outlook has about eighty folders. Within those folders are individual contacts. The folders are organized by work types such as "Framers". If you click the framer folder then ten different contacts are shown and you click on the one you wish to select for their information. When I sync my BB it will not list the separate folders and it just takes all 2612 contacts and puts them in alpha order. I have spoken with Nextel Tech and they say the only way is to make filters for all eighty folders and then move each to the correct filter. They also stated that this could only be done on the BB and not through desktop manager. I would probably wear the buttons off not to mention the light years it would take to do this!

Does anyone out there know if there is a third party software that can possible solve my problem. I have pocket day; however, it appears that this is not an option!

Your filters should already be there, if you have the contacts assigned to categories in Outlook. If you open the contact list in the BB, click the trackwheel, and select Filter, you should see your eighty categories. Select the one you want, and it will display the contacts in that folder.

I have tried several times and it does not load the eighty folders in filters. It puts all 2400 plus numbers just in contacts.

Default Categories

Instead of different folders, why not put them all in one folder and use the Categories feature to differentiate. Set up categories for Framers, Plumbers....
