Hey folks...I need some help
I'm new to the board and really need help with a problem.

I have a 8100 Pearl and my trackball fell out and is completely broken. I've got a new phone but realized my address book wasn't stored to my SIM card. I really don't want to lose all of my numbers (150+).

Is there a way to transfer my numbers to the SIM card via my PC? Or is there some way to navigate a Pearl without the trackball that I don't know about?

Any suggestions or help is GREATLY appreciated! TIA

Edit: I've been searching these boards and others for an answer already. It doesn't look like JL_Cmder will do what I'm needing...or will it?

Welcome to the BBForums!

Option 1: You need to use the Switch Device Wizard in Desktop Manager to move all your data and settings from device to the new.

Option 2: Do a backup on the old in Desktop Manager, and a Restore/Advanced of the Address Book only to the new.

Good luck.

and JL_Cmder will not do what you are looking for.

Also a replacement trackball is an option and they are fairly cheap. Not sure if your carrier is charging you any type of replacement fee or not, but you can check - Horizon Wireless, Canada’s Cellular Repair Center
