Two Address Books 9700 Bold

E-mail Print PDF

Heartburn City - Two address books and only one will sync with Exchange


On the BlackBerry smartphone there are two different address books. They are visible from Address Book > Options.


  • BlackBerry® Desktop Manager
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server
  • BlackBerry smartphone


One of the Address Books is blocking the synchronization process, as it uses the primary Address Book, which is empty.


To resolve this issue, complete the following steps:

  1. Perform a full backup the BlackBerry smartphone using BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  2. Wipe the BlackBerry smartphone data by following these steps:
    1. Go to Options > Security Options > General Settings.
    2. Press the Menu key.
    3. Select Wipe Handheld.
  3. Ensure the radio is not enabled.  By default, the radio is disabled after performing a security wipe.
  4. Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  5. Choose the appropriate mail profile for the BlackBerry smartphone user.
  6. Go to Backup and Restore > Advanced.
  7. Load the backup file that was created in step 1 by going to Options > Open.
  8. From the left side, select the Address All database, and then click the arrow pointing to the right and allow the request.
  9. Close the Backup and Restore window and click Synchronize.
  10. Make sure Synchronize organizer data is selected.
  11. In the Synchronization Configuration window, choose to synchronize only the address book (one-way).
  12. Perform a wired synchronization process.
  13. Set the Enterprise Activation password for the BlackBerry smartphone user in the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
  14. When the synchronization process is complete, disconnect the BlackBerry smartphone.
  15. On the BlackBerry smartphone go to Options > Advance Options > Enterprise Activation.
  16. Type the corresponding email address and the password.
  17. Let the BlackBerry smartphone activate.

The wireless synchronization should proceed as expected.

Programs required:

1: Slysoft ANYDVD 2: Slysoft CloneDVDMobile


Install both, you can use a 21 day trial before spending any money.

Navigate via windows explorer to:

Program Files Slysoft CloneDVDMobile

Look for the file devices.ini (save a copy just incase)

Open it in 'notepad'


Scroll down to Blackbery 8800 (change 8800 to 9000 if you like)

Change the resolutions to:

480 x 320

Change frame ratio to 16:10 (If anyone knows the exact best ratio to put here let me know)

Change frame rate to 25 (Bold can handle this easily it seems).

Save the file.


Plug in your bold via USB.

Make sure anydvd is running in your sys tray.

Run dvdmobile. Browse to the disc and it should only highlight the main film track. Go to the next step and set your preferred views. You can have it letterboxed or zoomed in as much as you like to fill the screen but lose some picture.

Set the output folder as the video folder on your media card (make sure you put the film name in the file path before the .avi

ie j:/blackberry/video/new_film.avi

Choose 1 2 or 3 passes for quality.

Set it going.

I use 2 pass and it takes about 25 minutes from start to finsish for a perfect transfer.


Hope this helps some people out

Let me know how you get on or if you're able to make any improvements.

Bold to debut on At&t Oct. 27th!

ImageRIM's BlackBerry Bold wasn't technically supposed to have launched already -- that's the magic in being all vague about a release date, we guess -- but we can safely say we're absolutely relieved to finally have something out in the open here. Read more here.
