    secret_code The developer of BlackBook, MBLware, Let me know about their application that gives you a secret contact list on your BlackBerry. It is only accessible by entering in a custom key combination on the keypad. The cool part is that it ties into the call and email and lets you view them with the right contact information through the application. It does not work as well with SMS due to API limitations but there is a workaround.

    Features include:

    • Fully editable information fields keep your contacts up-to-date.
    • User defined filtering for incoming and outgoing calls, sms, pin, and email conversations.
    • Customizable caller-id names for incoming calls.
    • Import and export the BlackBook contact list fast, and efficiently.

    The app is currently going for $3.99 in the store which is pretty decent for such a application. It only works with OS 4.5+ devices so keep that in mind. The app has a few caveats that you should read up on in the FAQ if you are considering using the application.

    Thanks DavidB, Tashanna, & KPatel for also sending this one in via BlackBerryCool!

    Just what I was thinking! Not too many other uses for this app that I would know.

    What a useless app! Next!

    Wouldn't it be nice if when ever we messed up our live we could simply press ' Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over??

    You must be living in an age where security of personal information isn’t needed. I live in the 21st century so this idea is great. Just dl’d. Will see how it goes.

    Uhm, how about for protecting your personal and business contacts that you would not want someone coming across if you happened to leave your phone somewhere accidentally? Password protecting your phone is a pain in the butt, having a completely hidden contact list that no one can access but you saves you from having to input your password every single time you want to use your phone, while still protecting your contacts & personal correspondence.

    Celebrities would probably love this to keep their business/personal contacts safe as well. Also anyone doing something illegal. haha, but it’s has obvious uses aside from cheating on your significant other.

    Password protection is a pain in the butt.???

    This app is intriguing but senseless.

    why would I lock my desk and leave my office door open.

    Lose my BB accidentaly… glad I have password protection.

    My entire BB is private and protected with a password.

    The only interesting thing I see is perhaps an ability to store additional confidential info within a contact which may be preserved from the access of the server admins but would still be protected by a device password. If the data is stored but hidden in the native address book then this is moot. where is this ‘hidden data’ stored and where can it be exported to. Talk about a pain to unlock a device , how about having to unlock every time i access this contact list. Might be good to think before we speak cause this app makes about as much sense as leaving my BB without password protection. Besides I give all my bookies, dealers and mistresses secret names anyway- and so does my wife…

    Purchased it but it doesn’t work…

    Great idea but very poor execution – perhaps it should go back to alpha testing?

    If it ever works properly, I would love to use it but for now, it is a money well wasted… too sad

    Warn this may be painful to some users who have a few contacts so do at your own if u have something to hide from your other

    Start by grabbing your blackberry and going into the address book.

    1.once in hit the “Menu”button which is to the left of the trackball

    2.then scroll to “Filter” and click trackball

    3.once in u will see 2 category’s u can remove them or use them up to u

    4.hit the menu button again and go to “New” and give it a “Category” Name name it all contacts

    5.once u done that hit the “menu” button again and uncheck the category u made

    WARN THIS IS THE PAIN IN THE BUT PART IF U WANT TO HIDE THE CONTACTS

    your contacts u have below will have to be changed to all contacts category u do that by editing the info of the contact

    1″Menu” button and go to “Edit” scroll down to “categories” and hit the space button or trackball 2 times will open the “categories” window

    from there u pick all contacts “category” save it and do it for all contacts u will still see them all in the address book that is normal cause we have more to do

    Go back to the “Filter” window by again doing the “Menu” and Picking “filter” and check “all contacts” and there u go u will keep it on this for default and im sure if u restart the bb should stay like this now back to more steps.

    once u see all your contacts u want to show hit the “Menu” button and go to “Filter” again and “Menu” button again and go to “New” name it “blackbook” or something once u done add the contacts u want here and rem when u add the numbers and stuff to scroll down to “categories” and hit “space” button or trackball 2 times and move them into the blackbook and once u done u go into the filter again and check all contacts and there u go they are now hidden when u go to call from addy book and do a sms <img src="smileys/smile.gif" width="" height="" alt=":)" title=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" />‘ class=’http://www.berryreview.co/wp-smiley’ /> </p>
<p></p>
<p>to all who did this must of been a pain but in the end will make u happy <img src=

    John,

    I had a problem with contact importing and got a reply from their support in less than 5 minutes. Turns out I was an idiot. Everything works for me. Maybe your OS is too old. who knows.
