Default How to block SIM contacts to appear during search

Please Login to Remove!


I have BB-Q10 software It has a problem that when I generally search a contact by writing contact name, the SIM contacts also appears. If for example, a cell number is saved in device memory with name "ABC" and same number is also saved in SIM with name "CBA" then system prefers the name of SIM's contact not device. Please guide me how i can block SIM contacts that they should not appear.
I have already disabled the SIM card contacts from settings.

Using the same number with two different names is not good. I would suggest moving all the SIM contacts to the phone and doing some editing to correct names.
It may be the software goes to the SIM card first and does the listing.
