Hello Sherin_Marina

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

Please try to Boot your device on same mode , If you recently installed any application before this Problem started ? Think carefully !

 

If you have then, On Safe Mode delete any application which you think might be responsible for this issue , from Options > Application > locate and delete any newly installed 3rd party application , it might help in resolving your issue :

 

KB17877 : How to start a BlackBerry smartphone in Safe Mode

KB10040 : How to view or remove installed application on a blackberry smartphone

 

If you're able to boot your device on safe mode then connect your device and first do a backup of using Desktop Software

Saving contacts on our SIM card is in my view is a good idea because ..Copying contact list from your device to a Sim Card is a lengthy process and SIM contacts will ONLY contain one phone number per contact entry. Our BlackBerry  Address Book will have a different arrangement with one Contact Name and several fields of information (Cell phone, Work Phone, Home Phone, email address, etc.) if you want to do it that way than you had to do one by one , so the best option will be to sync with your BB Desktop Software ,Have a look at this article reaging backup , I'm sure it will help you a lot for any future courses How To Backup Your BlackBerry
