Hi,

I have to wipeout a blackberry for a user, i did backup, restore, now the blackberry has only 29 contacts from the GAL. it is connected to the BES.
There is another list with 534 contacts, how do i get it to synchronize,
I tried the manual desktop manager and that got the 29 contacts only again.

Please help

So on the users exchange account does it show 524 entrys from the GAL? If not you can export a list to the user and then force the BES to sync the blackberry.

If it was on the bes (and everything was setup correctly), you should not have to do a restore.  I wipe out BB's and when I put them back on the BES, their info comes right back including contacts and call logs.  Since you have the backup, try wiping it again and just put it back on the bes and see what happens.

by default a blackberry will only sync contacts for the user's mailbox from the master Contact folder, no sub-folder.  if the user click Contacts in Outlook, how many display, if its 29 then thats what you have.

Scott is correct, everytime I wipe a handset, i rarely need to back it up, wipe, re-link/assign to user and let enterprise activation get on with it.  Sometimes you get users with 600+ contact in their Mailbox, in which case sometimes the sync will fail and miss maybe 20 or so -- all you need to do is stop wireless sync and link it to the user's Outlook and use Desktop Manager to fix/complete the sync, then re-enable wireless sync on the handset.  

Personally 600+ contacts is ridiculous and uses too much storage on the handset, but can also slow it down too, having GAL contacts too is a bit much.
