I was using my blackberry through the desktop manager software and it required a password, i wasnt able to get it within 10 tries, so it said that a memory wipe will be done.  I never backed up my address book and all my settings are screwed up.  Is there any way i can recover that information?

After the 10th attempt, and the wipe, with no backup available, you are out of luck. Sorry. Nothing can return the data.

Hi and welcome to the forums!


Sorry, if you never backed up the data it's gone.

You are back to the base state of the device. You will have to reset all your preferences again.


As far as your address book, calendar, memo, and tasks, you can do a one way sync with the

desktop software to load the device. I would suggest doing them one at a time, in case there is an error.




Please remember to resolve your thread.
