    Not directed at anyone in particular, but just a general comment: Start Making Backups! Once a week, whip out the DM, connect the cable, and back up your device. Some day, it'll save your data and possibly your hiney! Use your BlackBerry's Calendar ap to remind you . . .

    There is no more . . . but there are a lot of people posting lately that have corrupted data in their Contacts or elsewhere. Easiest solution is to simply do a restore from a previous backup using DM. Many times, they are not in the habit of backing up - so the data is lost for good, until rebuilt manually. Also, one never knows whaen one's device is going to get a drink spilled on it, or go for a swim, or be tossed of a 14th floor balcony by an angry girl/boyfriend. Backupd do save butts from time to time!

    I have DM set to backup ever 3 days at my work PC. Backups have saved me from some serious headaches in the past.
