    I believe there is..

    Try opening the .ipd file in notepad.

    Search for the phone pin (the pin on the phone your looking for).

    Remember the ipd file also contains the address book, so if you have a contact with this pin it will find it aswell.. but you should then see the name of the person who have that pin next to it.

    I found my pin several times in my ipd file. Actually it was 3 times.. two of them where with just "garbage" next to them.. and the last one was myself in address book.

    then you need to theier copy manually from the ipd file in notepad, or restore the backup to a phone and sync it with outlook

    You might want to look into purchasing a copy or ABC Amber BlackBerry. It will allow you to extract a lot of items from your BlackBerry backup files.
