was your device synched up with your Outlook or have you done a backup thru Desktop manager before it broke? if so you can retrieve those contacts.

Not IF they are on your SIM card.

You will need to open the SIM card in the Address Book, copy all to Address Book, and then sync to Outlook, and edit there.

As alluded to by dwp1975 above, you cannot view contacts, calendar, etc directly on the blackberry from the computer. At least as far as I know. You can, however, view this data in an application (such as Outlook) that you have sync'd with the blackberry, or possibly in a backup file.

If it is necessary you can get a sim card reader/writer. If you want to write back to the card you have to get one that reads and writes. Not all of them allow writing back to the sim card. Also make sure it is for sim cards for your provider and has the software to allow you to read, view and write. I have three and all work well. However, I got them years ago and none have a brand name on them and I don't know where I got them or what I paid. I did a google search and got the ones that looked good.

It's not like they would be a one time use. One of them came with the software to make a complete backup of your sim card. Blanks are cheap, like 9.99 for 5. I have spare sim cards also for each phone.
