    Default Switched SIM Card & lost all my messages & Pictures

    Hey all. I am on the Rogers Network in Canada (GSM) with my BB Bold, and I went on vacation to the Bahamas and bought and used a SIM card down there. However when I switched back to my Rogers SIM, I had lost all my BBM Contacts, all my texts & Emails, & pictures. But when I put the Bahama's SIM card back in, all my data was there again. How do I get all my data to show up in my phone with my original Rogers SIM card? Can anyone help?

    Thanks you!

    put the bahamas SIM card in and copy your pictures to your PC and do a backup
    then just install the rogers SIM and do a restore and copy your pics and whatever else back to the device

    O just put the sim back in and do a backup then put the rogers sim back in and recover what you want only from the backup.

    Or do backup your pictures first.

    As far as i know nothing is stored on the sim, but there is those people who still do store somethings onto a sim card... DON'T if anyone is ... as you can end up losing them for good if the sim goes dead.

    Ok, so the first time I tried to switch my SIM card was when I was still in The Bahama's about to take off. It looked like all my data had been cleared from the phones memory. However I am in North Carolina airport right now and I tried here, the problem seems to have resolved itself. So no need for comment. Im fine now. Thanks!

    Restore them from a recent backup maybe? Possibly sync with a desktop PIM maybe?
    No such thing as too many backups. Remember that.
