Address book disappeared

For no discernable reason, the contents of my address book disappeared. Everything else, background, pictures, etc. are fine. Any way to recover the numbers? If I reconstruct it, what steps can I take to back it up or to ensure it won't happen again? Thanks,

Blackberry 8830 world edition...all calls come up unknown number. Called sprint and it's not an issue through them it is a setting in the phone somewhere.

Hi there,

This happens strangely because of the "Content protection" feature of the blackberry.
The problem is seen worse when you see that some caller names are shown and not all. This happens due to the time when this setting is enabled. The entries added after this will be protected


This is for my model blackberry 8830
Goto Options -> Security options -> General Settings

Scroll Down to section starting with "Content Compression"
Look for "Content Protection" It must be "Enabled"
You can disable it at this level (not recommended) to disable the protection for all contents.
Specifically you can disable it for Address Book By setting "No" for "Include Address Book"
This way the address book will be available even if the other contents are protected when a call comes.

Would appreciate logging a message to me if this has saved your life!!! smile.gif

My pictures and addresses disappeared from the cache memory in the Blackberry! How do I recover them. Even my background has changed.

You may have booted your blackberry while it was plugged into your computer through USB. Your blackberry cannot read the mem card at the same time as your computer. Try rebooting it with it being plugged into a computer.

Speed dial

Hi, I found a way to get Speed Dial on the Eternity or Ultra Touch . As follows:
1. Copy all address book entries from Sim to Phone Memory.
2. Delete all Sim Address book entries.
3. Switch Address book source to Sim.
3. Re-enter up to 99 speed dial entries in Sim, in the exact order you want them to be assigned to speed dial.
4. Switch Address book source back to Phone Memory.
From now on all numbers on the Sim will be in Speed Dial and you will view the address book from phone memory. Of course any number can be in both places.
Now to speed dial just enter 1#, 2# etc for any number in the Sim Address book. You will get to view and confirm the entry and then dial. In a way this is even better then the speed dial functions on older Samsungs, as the preview before dialing ensures you have the right speed dial entry.
I think it works fine. dk

Everything works but the screen. Need help to recover address book

Yes you can access the address book using a data cable, but why don't you just take out the sim card if the numbers are stored on there? Or are they stored on the phone? I have a v551 with the sme problem that i am trying to fix so I have mine in pieces. If I can fix it I will let you know.
