Exclamation ehh, the ole' water damage Q

Please Login to Remove!

sOo I dropped my phone in the toilet, always a tad embarrassing, but it turns on, still rings and also receives messages...however, the screen doesn't stay on. The phone isn't really what I'm worried about, lets be honest, its old. the problem is that I need the contacts and uhm, don't have a Sim card : / - - or to the best of my knowledge there aren't any media/sim/data saving cards in it. I haven't had it very long and use very little memory as it is therefore it didnt cross my mind to get one. Okay to the there anyyy way to get my contacts transferred to the new blackberry?

You could try syncing to Outlook or Google or making a backup using DM. But I am afraid you might be outta luck.

Verizon stores (and most carriers) can sync the contacts, calendar, and many settings if you are getting a new phone. I normally buy online, and then take both into the store before activation so that I am up and running at activation.

You also should be able to use BB Desktop Manager to do a backup/restore or device switch assuming that you are staying with a BB.
