Thankyou very much for your replies guys, i just spent a while transfering all of them one by one onto the sim, but atleast they are safe!
One more quick question for you. I've looked into getting a external charger for the battery, here is a link to it below. Blackberry ASY12738001 Mini External Battery Charger (ASY-12738-001) £12.94
Would that charge the battery for my standard big bulky 8800? It says it works on the 8800 Pearl
and i was thinking perhaps the pearl has a different battery? A smaller one seen as it is considerably smaller. Or maybe it simply says Blackberry 8800 Pearl because it has the roller ball? I've never heard of an 8800 having pearl attached but thats possible.
Thanks again guys.
