    Tragedy!!

    Advertisement



    Stupidly I have returned my Pearl for a new one(wouldnt charge so exchanged) and happily waved the courier away with my old scratched , non-charging and unloved handset.Happy with my shiny new out of the box scratchless new one .I immediately realised that the courier also had all my contacts still inside the old girl DOH!!

    That will teach me ! But my question is , with having to start from scratch , are there any cool tips , tricks or things that people here might have found to do with contacts/address book that I and other people might adopt .

    I've learnt so much from here it's always my first point of call and there's always something new to enhance the BB experience.

    If you backed up your pearl you should be just fine. Just reload your address book on the DM.

    bcbbanga4l, The SIM Card phone book is not an address book, it has only the name and phone number and only one phone number for each name.

    jack, do you have any record of your contacts on your PC? Were they all entered using the BB?

    You can sync the contacts and calendar with one of the free web based programs like Yahoo to go. Then at any time from any computer anywhere you can get those contacts and calendar items sync'd back to your Pearl. A snap and free!

    There's also a new(ish) Google Sync app for the BB that will synchronize your BB and Google Calendars...
