    As posted in another thread, my 9800 died yesterday with fried motherboard just short of 2 years since I got it (I am with Rogers and thus every new phone will tie me into a 3 years contract).

    I will not be replacing my 9800 now and will probably wait for a BB10 device when they arrive and will be using my wife's old iPhone 3GS until then. So my question is about retrieving contacts from dead BB. It was backed up via BlackBerry Protect but I don't know how to restore data to a non-BlackBerry device.

    Any suggestions or advice? I have 345 contacts there, many of which not recorded anywhere else.

    I also have a recent backup to its micro SD card via SB Backup program.

    Is there any hope for me?

    This is/was my personal phone.

    Have you considered going on eBay for a cheapie used handset?

    That might be an option, I agree. Haven't looked there yet.
