Where are contacts stored?

Where does the Diamond store the information on my contacts (phone #'s/e-mail, etc.)? I have used file managers to dig through both the phone and my backup files on my PC--and I can't find them. I had to do a hard reset and I restored everything except contacts. I have those from an earlier backup and I just want to pull that one file and paste it into the phone rather than backup to a much earlier date. Does anyone know if this is possible and where on the phone they are stored? Thanks.

Re: Where are contacts stored?

Pim.vol is the file that you want. It should have been stored on the root of your device.
You may consider using a backup program such as PIM Backup to backup you contacts, mail, call history etc.
