Restoring Contacts to my Storm without a backup file...?

I just added Blackberry Desktop Manager (1.0.2 - build 8) to my Macbook (Mac OS 10.5.8) and performed my first sync with my BB Storm (


The Desktop Manager settings were set to 'two way' sync my calendar and contacts.


The syc failed and my BB contacts were erased (300+). The contacts from my BB were NOT added to my Macbook address book nor were my contacts from my address book added to my BB. I was left with 0 contacts on my BB.


I do not have, or cannot find, a backup file.


Is there anyway to restore my BB contacts?


Thank you.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!


Two problems...


1) This is the 8300 forum -- you say you have a Storm. 8300 is a Curve.

2) #1 may be moot -- you have a MAC...and that has a dedicated forum since things with MACs are so special. Stand by...this thread will be moved here:

Hopefully someone their with knowledge of MACs and your situation will happen by.


In the meantime -- there is no on-device backup from which to restore. So it's up to a backup that may have been created on your MAC.


Good luck!
