address book issue
 
so i installed blackberry desktop manager that came with my 9700. great.

go to sync and about 400 of my 1200 contacts are messed up. in my address book i have some numbers listed as 'main'. none of which pop up when I do a sync.

I've tried exporting my entire address book, opening up in notepad and replacing all instances of 'main' with 'work', but i lost ALL the notes I had on hundreds of contacts..

is there any solution to this? is there another software besides the garbage desktop manager I should be using to sync properly? any help is much appreciated!

Can you do the selective restore of only the contacts from your backup file?

I'm not familiar with how to do this.

basically, i dont want to spend hours going through all 1200+ of my contacts having to make sure the number isn't listed as a 'main'. that'll take forever...

i've tried googling to see how i can mass change the number type category, but haven't found anything. really stupid that blackberry's stuff can't support something so damn simple!

The answer is relatively simple. The question is, how did you get addresses in your Blackberry as "main" in the first place? That's not a standard field. Did you use a user defined field? If so, you need to map that field through the Blackberry desktop app before you sync.

my address book already had the fields set to 'main'. It's the blackberry that can't register main as a category to sync them properly to my phone.

so this mapping, i can essentially set desktop manager to register all entries as main as say the 'work' category that picks up properly?

thanks!
