Default 4.5 OS Address Books

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone notice the 4.5 OS seems to support multiple Address Book but seems a little quirky?

Address Book| Options list the Address Books and in the Backup/Restore you can see there is an "Address Book" and "Address Book - All" database.

When I restore the Address Book from backup I sometimes get multiple Address Books. If you're on BES there's Address Book called Desktop.

At one point I had and Address Books called Unknown and Desktop. For each contact I can choose which Address Book it goes into.

Must be either because you are connected to BES, or how you sync it with your computer. I'm on BES and sync via Missing Sync to my Mac, and only see the Default Address Book. Seems that RIM is adding support for multiple databases to several core applications, as Calendar also has support for different Calendars in 4.5 (on my BIS connected 8830, Calendars are defined per email account).

X14, I definitely experienced issues with the calendar myself - exhibits some strange behavior. There are a few links in the "Beta you than me" Forum which discuss the issue(s) in somewhat greater detail.
