I am using windows mobiel 6.1 and synching with Outlook. My private contacts on Outlook are fully visible on windows mobile contacts. i am a former Palm OS user which allowed me to hide private contacts. is there a way to do this on windows mobile so that any contact i mark private in my desktop Outlook is automatically hidden on my portable windows mobile phone. at least hidden until i add a password.
thank you

If you go into setup and change the "Prompt for password if device unused for:" settings. To anywhere from 0 to 5 minutes.  It can be cumbersome sometimes, but it would ensure that your phone (and everything in it, including your contact list) is protected right after, or soon thereafter.
