I took my 7100 off the charger this morning and everything was fine. I had a CPE seminar today that started at 8AM. The proctor of course told everyone to turn off cell phones. I usually just turn mine to "quiet."

I pulled my 7100 out of the holster and it was powered off. The seminar was over at lunch and it would not power up. I go by the Nextel store and he tells me it's not a battery problem, it's a hardware failure. In his exact words, "toast."

I realize I can get all my contacts thru my SIM card, but is there ANY way to retrieve my data. I know I'm horrible for not having a more recent backup, but there ya have it.

I have my personal checkbook in there. Tax return due dates for 28 states, the counties within and each city within that county, my personal bills basically everything.

One thing the guy behind the counter said that has really bothered me is, "These Blackberry's are bad about this." I've never heard of one going dead myself, 'cept mine.
