Default My BB ate my Contacts

Please Login to Remove!

I have an old 7290. I foolishly downloaded the updated software off the T-Mobile website. Although it backed-up my email & contacts through the download process, 1 day later my contacts disappeared off the BB. I tried to restore them from the saved back-up, and it wouldn't accept it. I found postings to suggest that this is a common problem with no fix. I can't find the old version of the software to download. Does anyone know how to get an older version?

If not, then I want to get the data from the back-up and convert it to Outlook. Does anyone know if the Amber Blackberry Converter software can do that?

Also, the icon that lets me access the internet disappeared off my screen. How can I get that back?

For internet try resending service books!

The amber converter allows you computer to read the .ipd file you should be able to import or copy an paste into a word or excel document and them import that into outlook

Maybe its too little too late. For future reference, and for others who may read this, please keep a copy of your PIM info somewhere. Whether it be through outlook or somewhere else.
