    I'm assuming he didn't back anything up. I know what I would do if I had a lot of money and I dropped my computer and smashed the hard drive, but then again the information would have to be very important to have a lab recover it (maybe). Best motto is to back everything up...

    Sorry I can't help.
    Maybe someone else has a miracle solution....

    The only way you can get any data off of it is if by some chance to PC will reconize the device

    What about the contacts on the SIM card? Any memory card installed?

    If you can't get the computer to see the BB you may be out of luck unless you get some forensic work done on it, but that can be very costly.
