Blackberry 8530 cannot add New Contact in Contacts
Posted on 2012-04-12
I can no longer add a New Contact to my BlackBerry 8530 Contacts application. It worked before; I rarely use it. I don't sync this particular app to any computer app - I just add contacts one-by-one "as I go". Since I haven't added a contact in about 3 months, I do not know what I may have added to my BB to cause this issue. This is a personal BB and is not on an Exchange Server - it only syncs to my local computer and I have backups (the problem is, I haven't backed up my BB in about 3 months as well and if I use Restore, I lose contacts as well as purchased apps).
I have a:
BlackBerry 8530 that is running:
Device software: v 188.8.131.520 (Bundle 1675, Platform 184.108.40.2061)
My desktop software is BlackBerry Desktop Software: 220.127.116.11
So I guess my question is, how can I re-load or replace just the Contacts application as it does not appear to be listed as an application in the BlackBerry Desktop software?
If I could backup the contacts and wipe it, that might do as a last resort, but I can't seem to find a way to export my contacts to my computer either (but again, that'd be a last resort as just replacing the app would seem to be a lot easier).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
** Ah yes, and this is what happens when I attempt to add a New Contact **
1. Open Contacts.
2. Either select New Contact from the Contacts list
Use the option button to bring up the menu and select New Contact
3. Nothing happens. A window doesn't appear. There is no error message. On occasion, the BB will temporarily stop functioning but will work in a short while.
** As a side note, I was able to create a New Group in the Contacts application.
