I was wondering if there was a free alternative to Address Book? OS X 10.4.11 iMac G5. The reason being that I loathe syncing the Address Book with my BlackBerry Pearl. Why you ask? Because my wife and I each have our seperate contact lists, and share some of the same numbers, when synced, information shows in the notes section of the contacts. Well, I am OCD enough to not be able to stand that, and having to go in every single time and edit each contact.

So, is there a free alternative to Address Book? If not, is there a way to eliminate the unnecessary information from showing up in each contact?

How come you don't use two accounts on a single computer?

Plus, there is no alternative that allows syncing with a BlackBerry.
