Default Can'f figure out how to add contacts into groups in address book

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry for the dumb newbie question but I'd like to set up a few groups in my bb 7130e's address book. I choose to add a new group, but when I attempt to add members to the group, there is no option to accept them into that group. I searched and apparently there should be a continue option that comes up when you add new members, but it doesn't appear on my pop up menu when I push in the trackball to do it.

Help!

While reviewing how to do this so I could answer your question, I just noticed the same thing on my 8700c with Telstra 4.1.309. I know I had this set up on my 7100g long ago but not sure what software I was using at the time.

I would say it's an error in the OS. What OS are you using?

hmm interesting. Is that the OS that came standard? Or do you have a Cingular 7130 with the Verizon OS?

I know it's gotta be a software bug because when I added the members to a group before there was an option to 'add'. Not sure what else to tell you, maybe try loading a different OS (only if your familiar with the process) or doing a fresh install and see if that fixes the problem.

Its a verizon phone with verizon service.

Here's what I'm doing:
Open address book
Select New Group from menu - New Group: *no addresses* appears
Choose Add Member from menu
Highlight a name in my address book, bring up menu, and the choices are:

PocketDay
Berry411..
-----------
Filter
New Address
View
edit
-----------
Options
-----------
Cancel


None of the options listed appear to give me the ability to save a contact to the group and I can't save the group without any contacts in the group.

What happens if you hit Enter after highlighting the name?

I think I just figured it out.

I wasn't able to add contacts to a new group because the ones I was choosing did not have email addresses in the records. Groups must be a feature to assemble multiple contacts for sending broadcast messages to.

Now, I guess I'm looking at creating categories. Perhaps that is more general. All I want to do is put contacts in broad buckets like prospects, customers, employees, family.

Oh boy. I am sorry. For some reason I just assumed you were trying to add people with email addresses. Then when I tried it on my BB I didn't pick any names with email addresses either.

Again my apologies.
