    recover contacts from wiped BB?

    Anyone know of any software that can recover data from an accidentally wiped BlackBerry that has no backup?

    Help!

    If you had it sync'd up to a BES then just re-enterprise activate it.

    Otherwise, check Address Book > SIM Phone Book, and check if you had any stored there.

    If that fails, then hard luck, a wipe will remove all data (other than the IT Policy) and the memory card contents.

    Quite a bit of software like this to recover from external devices. Not guaranteed though depends on use after the wipe

    I just tried that one, it found a few old photos, but not the contacts list or anything else..
    Anymore software that you know of?

    You probably need a SIm card data recovery software like this one. The chances will be very slim with the amount of memory they hold. You will also need a sim card reader

    It will really depend how much of the Sim card you backed up onto the memory card

    Tried the sim card software too, luckily i have a sim reader lying around.
    no joy there either, the sim is apparently completely blank (which cant be true as it has some Orange customer service numbers on it).

    Would it even be on the sim card though? wont the address book etc have been on the phone?

    Yes, contacts are generally stored on the phone, but if you had stored some on the SIM, then at least all would not be lost.

    You're boogared basically.
