Need to access my contacts, calendar, etc. without phone (was stolen)

My BB Torch was recently stolen - I need to access my contacts, calendar, etc., but am unable to open them on my computer.  Does anyone know of a program or process that I can use to open those files on my PC?

Re: Need to access my contacts, calendar, etc. without phone (was stolen)

Hello,

 

Well, it would depend on the program that created those files on your PC. Since you posted in the Desktop Software section of our forums, I'm going to guess that you performed a backup of your BB to your PC. As such, you now have either an IPD or BBB file...that file is proprietary in it's structure, and is natively intended solely to be used as the source of restore to a BB...it has no other native purpose. But, there are 3rd party PC apps out there that can parse and present the file to you in human-readable format. Simply search (via Google) for IPD or BBB reader apps, and I'm sure you'll find plenty of useful results to help your situation.

 

Good luck!
