I have a same problem,when I tried to sync contacts to my macbook via desktop manager.... Only Contacts under Information tab were TWO WAY checked to sync, I clicked on top of the right button sync,and I lost all phonebook on blackberry (my mistake,I didnt make back up), and I can't find where mac stored phonebook from blackberry. On blackberry's phonebook there is just one contact transfered from mac,which I have in macbook's adressbook,but on mac I can't find blackberry's phonebook.
Is it possible to restore the old phonebook?
I have blackberry 8310 and Mac OS X v. 10.6.5

i lost my contacts during software update. Please help me to get this.. i made some backups before..but after restoring the file i'm not getting the contacts

I backed up my phone too, and it didn't keep my contacts. I searched for the ".ipd" file, nothing came up. This program is ridiculous. I thought I was being responsible when I clicked the backup button. Now I realize I should never get my phone near this software and it will be fine.
