    I have a BB bold and use a MAC. I have over 10,000 contacts (9,500 +/- duplicates) in my address book. I cannot delete them on the bold and when I delete them on the MAC (using gmail) the sync doesn't work. As a result everything is very slow - on the bold and the google contact list. What can I do? I've tried deleting on both but neither "takes."

    You must have a telephone directory in there, lol. Is it an entire customer base?

    Also with your Contacts folder open, press Menu/Options and under- Allow Duplicate Contacts- select NO then Save. If this doesn't correct the problem immediately then do a battery pull.
