Default Recovering Deleted Contact

Please Login to Remove!

I got this person's number last night and added them to my contacts. I called the person and they received my phone number as well. By mistake, I accidentally deleted their contact number and the call history on my phone.

Basically, my question is this: is there any way to recover their phone number?
I don't back up my blackberry nor do I have BES or Desktop Manager.

PLEASE HELP!! THIS NUMBER IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!

You can only get it back if you have a recent backup of your BlackBerry on a pc. You could restore from that backup file and that would reinstate the deleted contact. There is no "un-delete" so without a backup file it's gone.

It takes more than an "oops" to delete both a contact and your call history. If you did all this, well, it's gone.

This has absolutely nothing to do with recovering the data from your BB, but have you tried simply logging into your account with Sprint and checking your recent call history? You ought to be able to figure it out by date & time what the number was, or at least come up with a few possibilities....

Not sure how Sprint is with this, but I can go to my Verizon account on line and check this stuff with no problem.
