Lost my Hotmail contacts.... what's happened?!

Can anyone tell me what has happened here please?


Last week, before I had the Torch 9800 I had about 250 contacts in my Hotmail account.


I get the Torch, load all my contacts from my old phone onto the SIM card, put the SIM card in the Torch 9800, copy them, create my email account on the 9800, and go into Hotmail today and find that the only contacts I have in the Hotmail account are those I have on my phone?


I've lost all the contacts I had in email and only have the contacts I have on the Torch?


What the hell have I done and is this normal?


Thanks in advance!

Re: Lost my Hotmail contacts.... what's happened?!

just inserted my sim card from my previous blackberry and my new 9800 torch will not read my phone contact numbers or my txt messages or my emails.


put sim back in old blackberry and my contacts and txt are still there but my emails have disappeared.


i need to keep some of my txt for legal reasons and i dont have time to retype in100+ contact numbers


i have tried the blackberry HELP but the info it gives doesnt work when you try it as the TABS dont exist


so guess who is using his old phone tomorrow
