    I downloaded phonebook to phone using mobile action software now all ringtones have low beep once. They are stored in each phonebook entry so its a lot of work if I remove manually. Anyone know a fix???

    Since I got no replies I discovered a fix myself - great way to spend a Friday night :) Of course in the hours I wasted I could have easily updated 1 by 1.

    I figured out how to bulk delete the individual contact ringer ids that I believe got messed up from handset manager. I exported the phonebook file via bitpim to a csv file, opened in excel, deleted 4 columns that related to the personal message and call ringer ids, except for the headers. Deleted the entries in bitpim by ctrl-a and delete then reloaded them back using the import feature. Worked like a charm.

    I initially tried this with a csv file I created in handset mgr but this required manually setting the column headings which is difficult to match exactly.
