BlackBerry 10.2 PIN Contact Sync Has Changed

BlackBerry 10.2 Changes BB PIN Contact Mapping

BlackBerry 10 PIN to Outlook Contact field now in IM Address Field
For 15 years, a BlackBerry PIN was synced to UserField1 an Outlook Contact.
This has mysteriously changed on OS 10.2

The RIM 950 was the first BlackBerry handheld I owned. It ran for days on an “AA” battery. There was no SMS Text messaging but every BlackBerry had PIN to PIN messaging.  PIN messages didn’t have the size limitation that SMS had and typically had a delivery confirmation in under a second.
