Need Help Erased Contacts By accident

Ok i messed up, was messing around with my MSN messenger on my HTC touch. It asked me if i wanted to sync my contact from msn to my phone. And well i said yes and did not realize what i did. it replaced my contacts from the msn ones.

Does anyone know if i can still salvage them.

I know that "computers" have a restore point. Wondering if this also has the same or something. Help!!!

Unless you have sync'd your phone with your pc or backed up your PIM file, they are unfortunately lost. If you still have your old phone, you could bluetooth all of your contacts to your mogul.

Re: Need Help Erased Contacts By accident

If your dont do backups, or have the contacts on outlook and can be sync back,if you dont...you are SOL like the above post stated, what I want you to do right now is d/l PimBackup (freeware) start backing up your contacts. Lets just say this is a lesson learned and the hard way.

I cant remember if it will work after the contacts are gone, but if you copy your Pim.vol and open it up via "notepad" it will look like a mess, but you can put together some contact parts and make it out if you really need a certain number.

Re: Need Help Erased Contacts By accident

i use mail2web. it saves all my emails and contacts on their server. then i just add exchange server in activesync and they automatically download to my device. greatest thing for a PPC.

Re: Need Help Erased Contacts By accident

Dashwire can definitely backup/sync your contacts. Also uploads and backs up text messages, photos, videos, and call logs, as well as makes available online your voicemail and phone settings.

If only interested in contact backup, there isn't a shortage of options.
