Default oops, i didn't backup. help

Please Login to Remove!

i bought a friends 8800 to replace my 8800 which broke. He told me not to erase his contacts and notes yet till he could transfer them over to his new phone. i figured i would backup his phone and go ahead and transfer mine from my old phone. only problem is that i forgot to backup his phone. he doesnt have a current backup of it either.
is there any way to restore his phones information w/o a backup file?

Welcome to the BBForums.

Have you already wiped the device? Are his contacts still on the old BB?

If neither you or he have a backup file, and no sync to Outlook anywhere, no.
