Hi srinathviyer,


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.

Could you provide more information please?

Do you have a previously taken backup file that you can restore your contacts from or did you have wireless contact synchronization enabled?

Re: BB Curve 8520 - Method to retireve contacts

If you have a previous Blackberry backup, you can just restore it or simply extract the contacts from it and import them back to your device. Try using Blackberry Backup Extractor. You can use your Google account to transfer the contacts back to your phone, here's how to import contacts to Google.
