Telstra service person took my battery out to "fix" my i-mate and I lost all contact details. I do not have a back up. Is there any way of retrieving the data? SIM card has only part of data and each name will 3 or 4 different numbers ie. mobila, home and work and each was copied back like that.

Best of luck solving your battery/signal issue!
I can understand you very well since I use a PDA also and this battery problem is an issue for me too. I assume that your backup file is in your storage card and is a standalone exe file (means you don't need your backup software being installed first to start a recovery process). You can remove your storage card from your PDA first and back it up to a PC to ensure that your only backup file is safe. Next, you can do another hard reset to your PDA and do all the settings steps again. After that, you can try to recover some of your data by starting the recovery process and performing not a full backup, but just the necessary data first. I am recommending this step because you have a PDA that's main storage area is very limited (like mine) and if you are normally using it filled up, backup process can be terminated before it finishes because of the backup file is nearly equal to the total main storage area, and this causes your device to stop working even after your incomplete recovering process. This is mainly becuase recovering process needs lots of space and when the process is near the end, it can't have enough space on main storage area to continue. So, you can try to recover the necessary data first (Softwares, contacts, appointments, ...), then, if it is successfull, you can open your backup file again and this time you can select the other personal documents that has been left in the first process. (I hope your backup software supports selecting the needed data to recover.)
Your initial settings may have been lost if you didn't back them up in an mmc card using the top slot compartment of the phone sorry! Whenever you remove your battery from the phone for more than 2-3 mins the phone goes to a default reset mode and on start up will start to re-install all the default features including the Arabizer which is due to the fact that the phone was designed in the UAE,you however can reject this installation whenever your default startup commences,and still enjoy your phone.
If you have an mmc card then after the phone has fully rebooted at default settings. Go to the phone settings page and select the "phone backup" option this enables a restore or backup option.If you have already backed up the data before, click on restore.All your settings will be restored.If not you will need to make new settings for your phone and then back them up this time.
Also for your phone contacts there is a "permanent restore option" at the "Phone settings" display. click on this option after you have entered your phone details and it will permanently save all your phone nos regardless of any kind of reset.If you did'nt do this earlier i'm sorry,your phone nos are lost also.
