contacts gone!

I have just discovered all my contacts have gone! Any idea what's happened? can I get them back? Is it some kind of virus? And if it is how do I get rid of it? thanks

Re: contacts gone!

Hi mumsgirll


Its possible you may have an address book filter enabled.  From your BlackBerry® smartphone Address Book, press the menu key and choose Filter.  If any boxes appear with a check mark, remove the check mark them then press the menu key to return to your main Address Book.


Let us know if your contacts appear.

Re: contacts gone!

Hi CptS


Same happened to me - suddenly all contacts are gone. I tried the filter option, but it does not work. Any other ideas?


Best regards
