Phone contacts syncing to FC

I've been reading post from the July time frame saying that Frequent Contacts was designated as the default GW to phone contact folder. That looks to be changed, since from our testing of a HTC Evo and Samsung Epic we can sync specific contact folders to the phone and new entries in the FC folder are not being synced.

The issue seems to be that contacts entered in the phone are still being synced to the Frequent Contacts folder and not to the folder chosen to be the sync point. For example in our case the mobilecontacts folder.

Does anyone know if there is a plan to change how this is currently functioning?

Thanks for your reply.

  • Go to the properties of Frequent Contacts (from GroupWise client) and select the address book you want contacts to sync to.

  • Hi,

    I can't believe this hasn't come up sooner.

    reverendjb can you please explain further, I cannot find anywhere to change this setting under properties. If I am in the main view where Frequent contacts is visually shown as a parent of the other address books, I can right click properties and change that to another book and that becomes the parent (visually) but it did not change the fact that contact synced to frequent contacts.

    I've found that after you change the PAB for the contacts folder in the
    GW client, you really have to remove the user from Mobility and readd
    to get the change to fully take effect. Don't forget to also delete
    the account from the device before readding the user to Mobility.
