Default Better Address book?

Please Login to Remove!

I really dig my 7100. I've had it for about 6 months and really only have 1 complaint: the very clumsy way of filtering in the address book.

Does anybody know of a better address book?

What type of problem are you having with filtering? Are you syncing with Outlook or another database/calendar?

Default With Outlook

I'm syncing with Outlook and am not having a problem.

In Outlook I prefer to look at my contact in the By Category mode. BB only has the mass listing or the clumsy method of filtering.

I would like to see a by category mode in BB.

Default right

Right, but that is still a lot of changing the filter. If I have it set for work, but need to make a personal call, I'm flipping around. I using the search better these days. I used to just hit the first letter and scroll through that, but now hitting 2 or 3 of the letters narrows things down pretty good.

Just seems like there would be a bbetter way.

Have you tried typing the first letter or 2 of last name SPACE and first letter of first name? This narrows the list down very well.
