hi there. let me say thank you for the advice billbaby. Totally worked. However, the only difference was instead of it saying "desktop sync" -- mine had a gmail account with (sync) behind it. I suppose anyone reading this should follow his instructions and if "desktop sync" does not appear. Look for the only thing that has the word (sync) behind it. Good luck. and thanks again.

I have the same problem he did.. I couldnt get my address book, or my memos, or my password keeper....
I did as suggested, deleted the desktop sync, and got back the memos and password keeper, the address's are still greyed out...
Any other possible ideas?

The Answer for Bold 9900 OS7
I have searched and fiddled to finally find the answer for getting my contacts back for my bold:
options --> device --> advanced system settings --> Service book
I then has two email accounts set up which were at the top of the list which was displayed. They both had SYNC writted next to them. I deleted both of them and then carried out the back up from blackberry protect. Where the "contacts" had previously been greyed out, it waas now avaliable to select. I'm so pleased.
Thanks fo everyone who gave me an idea of what I was looking for
Hope this helps someone else, as I was having a mare!
