    Locked out of my blackberry bold



    Hello!

    Today I accidentally keyed in the wrong password for the max 5 times and got locked out of my blackberry. I think all the data got wiped out I managed to restore my bbm contacts but was just wondering if there was any way at all to get back my phone contacts and saved messages?

    Any help would be great thanks!!

    You're going to think I'm a complete idiot but...I have no idea if I had. Is there any way I can find out?

    Connect your Bold to your PC. Open Desktop Manager and click on Backup/Restore. Look in the Restore section to see if you see anything saying "Backup.ipd". If you find that, you're in luck. If not, I feel your pain. I have done this before.

    Well, since you don't even know what Desktop Manager is, chances are pretty good you don't have a backup, unfortunately.

    You'll want to make a habit of doing them from now on. You can download the latest version of DM from here.
    It's always darkest before the dawn, so if you're gonna steal your neighbor's newspaper, that would be the time to do it.

    If it's not in the BlackBerry folder on your computer, or on the CD that came with your Bold, download and install it from here http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/
