Default BB 8800 on BES

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8800 on the BES Blackberry Server. Contacts are synced with my Work Outlook. Is the a way to store contacts on the SIM and no be in the Contacts Folder?

Trying to have my Work Contacts separate from my Personal Contacts...

Thanks in advance...

You can store phone numbers in the SIM address book. The SIM address book doesn't contain anything other than a name and number for each entry.

I'd recommend using categories to sort your contacts. If you don't want your company/BES admin to have access to your personal contacts then you really shouldn't have them on your company BB at all.

I concur on the tip as well. On my Pearl I "CAN" save contacts to the SIM card 1-at-a-time, which is painful. This is something I'd like for RIM to adjust in the next series of firmware updates for both 8100/8800 - saving contacts to a SIM card should've be perceived as a security risk, to me personally, but hey at least we can now.

Check you local store and see if you can get contacts copied from a previous SIM card onto a new one with a SIM-to-SIM coping device.
