Default Blackberry broken, need to get my calendar items from back up file! HELP!

Please Login to Remove!

Yes... i dropped it. My shiny new 7290... now in 4 nice and separate pieces.

I am totally lost! No email. No telephone numbers. AND NO CALENDAR!

Could any please help me get my calendar back from the .IPD backup file?

Do you have an old spare BB kicking around? 6710, 6210 etc. Not sure anything else can read the .ipd back up beyond a BB...

Shame about the device especially one so new and feature rich... Is it just a matter of a new case to house the guts of the BB or is it hosed altogether? If its just the case check out the following: http://www.promobility.net/html/blackberryparts.shtml

yes thank you v much for reminding me!

anyway i think maybe i will do this another way. Which OLDER BB (ie cheaper) can i buy to download the calendar file into?

Will any older model BB take the backup file?

I just ran a quick test, and it could read an ipd file
