    Address Book Recovery - HELP!!

    Advertisement



    so i lost my phone and all of my contacts and my new blackberry is on its way but won't be here for a while....however i NEED to get a contact's cell phone number pretty urgently.

    my question is, i have a fairly recent backup of my phone's address book on my computer through desktop manager...you know one of those *.ipd files or whatever it is. is there anyway i would be able to read that file on my computer at all? or would there be a better way to do this so that i don't go through this again?

    please help me out! thanks!

    (i'm using one of at&t's cheap go-phones right now and i feel like i'm in hell)

    Davey,

    Here is the link to a 3rd party software solution that will allow you to convert your .ipd files (reportedly allows you to convert non-encrypted .ipd backup to multiple formats like DOC, PDF, PST etc.)

    I have no experience with this software, so please post back and let us know how it goes!

    For future you may want to consider not only backing up your device but also syncing with a desktop program like Outlook, Outlook Express, etc...

    You can try looking for an application called "ABC Amber BlackBerry Converter" This should be able to read the ipd file
