Default new BB, old contacts??

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

So I inserted my old sim and memory cards into my new BB, but I have none of my old contacts in my contact list, I was afraid of wiping the list so I may have selected "no" when I should have said "yes" on one of the prompts. My photos etc are there, but none of the numbers.

Help??

thanks

Did you make a back up of the old device? Or did you sync with Outlook or Google? If so, use that.

Contacts are not usually stored on the SIM and can't be put on the SD.

If you still have the old BB, you could use the "Switch Device" wizard to move things over.

Its part of Blackberry desktop manager, on a pc [or mac] and you need both devices.

Both. Install Desktop Manager on your PC and follow the prompts.
