    I am currently on a 9700 running the cracked version of 6.0. I have always found managing contacts on the Blackberry absurdly annoying. Just wondering what you guys do/recommend.

    My device is not a corporate device (thus I am using BIS) and all my contacts are on Google Contacts. I, of course, do not use outlook to manage my contacts since I need a cloud solution and I don't use outlook for my personal mail.

    I have my contacts wirelessly syncing but it seems to be a little flaky. Once in a while some important contacts get deleted. Here's what I would want ideally

    1. Contacts sync seamlessly (I don't want to manually sync with a USB cable)
    2. I don't want to edit my contact data primarily on the phone, I would prefer a web app (IE Google Contacts) that I can edit anywhere (not just my personal computer)
    3. Contact pictures that I specify sync to the phone
    4. Contacts don't randomly get deleted

    Any ideas?

    Google Sync does seem to do the job. However, you will sometimes get duplicate contacts on your first sync, but it's not hard to hop on a PC and clean it up in your Google contacts. I have found that Google Sync will sometimes just stop working, so far for unknown reasons. When that happens I just delete the app and re-install it. I run a hybrid OS so I'm not sure if that may be part of the problem. Overall I'm satisfied with GS, and the price is right.
