Where was life without the Blackberry phone? Now, we can check or send email messages while bored at a meeting, at a game, or in a class. In other words, our ability to connect has become so mobile that our lifestyles have truly changed.
All of this started when I came home with my exciting package which contained my new toy within. I followed the instructions so that I could get my email addresses from my accounts onto the Blackberry. This would give me the freedom to be away from a desk and still have the flexibility to connect. I, now had all of my email addresses of my friends downloaded onto my Smartphone.
There was a glitch, however. I noticed that I suddenly had five entries for my friend “Dimitri Gumm”. I had put in her home phone number into the SIM card four years ago. When she called me on her cell phone, I captured this into the same SIM card into another entry. Without realizing it, I also put in her work phone number when she sneaked in a break to tell me about upcoming layoffs. Thus far, I had three entries for Dimitri without really realizing it. I transferred this information to my new Blackberry.
Now that I had this cool new device and had downloaded my addresses from Yahoo and Gmail, my Blackberry told me that I now knew five Dimitri Gumm’s , yet I only have met one! I figured that I had no choice but to live with this headache. With five entries, I could just hit the scroll button on my Blackberry, then hit enter and then view the content five times over before I hit what I needed, right?
Wrong! I just discovered Contacts Cleaner. Blackberry now sells this app for $2.99 that consolidates your contacts into one entry. So, now I have one entry for my friend Dimitri Gumm and all of her phone numbers and email addresses are merged into this one entry. The hassels of using my phone are finally gone.
I highly recommend this solution for the modern day Blackberry user. I was so excited about this application that I felt the need to write about it and share my find. Thanks Blackberry App World! Keep up the good work.
