Re: Address Book Contacts not showing

I have a Bleckberry 8530. Contacts are being deleted. I have, or had, about 880 contacts in my phone. They are being deleted one at a time. I do not have any filters set. Numbers from many categories have been lost. I have lost most of the phone directory for work and my daughter in law's number among others. It does not depend on category, old data from imported from my old phone, or new data I have entered recently. Missing or present address fields make no difference.  I thought it might be a sync problem so I experimented and did not sync for 6 weeks. At least 3 entries were lost during that period. Some entries are partially lost. I had a coworker's business number, home number, and cell number. I recently looked and found only the land line number was still there, and it was listed as the mobile number.


Is there a way to merge the contacts from old sync files to get my addresses back?
