Exclamation 7290 Address Book maximum size?????

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know of any actual limitation on the maximum number of contacts that are allowed? We have some ppl here with over 10000, and sometimes they seem to have difficulty with the device at that point. Could it be a space limitation?

What type of difficulty are you talking about? I had a user who had a 7290 with over 7,000 address book entries and he had major issues syncing when we were still on BES 3.6. After we migrated to BES 4.0 and he completed the Enterprise Activation I haven't heard from him at all (and that was last August).

The hard limit on the number of address book entries is "however many you can squeeze into the remainder of the 32 megs after OS, Calendar, email, memos, tasks"

Theoretically, each contact with minimal information in it will take up about 150Bytes (give or take). So, you can get about 6.5 contacts per KByte. 4.0 OS takes about 8Meg...so your 32Meg device is now at 24. Assuming you have absolutely nothing but contacts (with minimal information in them) you should be able to get about 159744 contacts on your BlackBerry. So I guess that would be the theoretical maximum.

Now, how many people actually use the BB for JUST contacts? So, every email is going to take up some space, and every calendar item (these can actaully be quite large....like 1.5k each), and every task, and every photo, and every attachment, etc...

Hey - srry to resurrect but this is related so I figured I would just ask in here. I have a 7290 that says Address Book size is 950. That is what it limits it to. If I click the wheel on it, the only options are Save and Close. Anyone know how to increase this limit? Thanks in advance,

Like the previous posterd stated, it is dependent on the memory you have left on your device. You should check via options, status and see how much you have left.
