Part: IV BlackBerry PIM Applications > Using the Address Book

Chapter 10. Using the Address Book

BLACKBERRY BASICS:

  • The Address Book is used by other applications as the central point for creating messages and calls.

  • The Address Book has a nice search feature. To activate it, simply start typing the name you want to search for.

  • Menu items allowing you to send messages or create calls are shown only if the address has the proper information to do them.

  • Lookups help you find addresses stored in your corporate Address Book if you are using a BES.

  • Address entries can be grouped to create a distribution list.

  • Categories are used to help organize memos, tasks, and addresses.

The Address Book is integrated tightly with both the Message and the Phone applications. In fact, you've used it already in both Chapter 5, “Composing and Sending Messages,” and Chapter 9, “Making Phone Calls,” though you may not have realized it. When you compose a message or place a call, the Address Book is used to select the recipient. Up to this point, we have used only the Use Once entry and manually entered the address or phone information. This is fine when you are really using that person's contact information only once, but the Address Book provides you with much more efficient ways to reach your intended recipient.
