Default How to sort contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

What is the best way to sort contacts? Filter seems good but once I filter I lose everyone with no filter assigned. I just want to seperate out business from personal.

Forgive me if this is the wrong forum to be asking.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but if every contact has business or personal and you want to look at just personal contacts, you can filter out the business ones by selecting personal.

Myself, I have about 5 categories (you can do the categorization in Outlook instead of on the BB, btw) and it works great for me. Also, you can assign a single contact to more than one category, so a family member that works with you can be both a personal contact, family contact and a business contact (or whatever categories you choose to put them in). That one person would come up in all three filters, in this example.

That's pretty much how I've been doing it. Once I have the filters set up is there a way to see contacts that have no filter assigned on the BB? For example, if I set up Joe and neglect to assign a category can I view a complete list that will include all categories and Joe?

Edit: On the BB that is. Not on a PC.

Yes, you can click on the already-tickmarked box in Filters (in effect, unticking it) and you get the unfiltered view and can see all contacts. I hope that's what you meant, hehe.
