organize address book
I am onn a mac but my BB 7100v in synched to our company based PC server, so I dont have access to synching personally.

In Outlook I have my address (contacts) list organised by group (friends, family, business, freelance, etc) when my new BB was synched, it didnt take these subfolders with it therefore my address book on the BB is one long list not catagorised.

Is there a way to organize the address book into catagories and view the catagory names as opposed to the long list of contacts? If so how?

The only way that I have found to put addresses into categories is...when in the address book, click in the trackwheel and scroll up and click on filter. On mine it starts off with a business category and a personal category, but you can add a new category by clicking in the trackwheel and selecting new.
From there click on the trackwheel of the selected category and change option (which will check that category). Then it will bring you to the business category, so when in that click your trackwheel (TW) scroll up to lookup and when the contact is found click TW and select add.
May be a tedious process if you have a bunch of contacts that you want to put into several different categories...Hope this helps you!
