    So this weekend I had both my cell phone (Blackberry Curve) and my laptop stolen!

    The thing I am most upset about is I don't want to lose all of my contacts. I had a message pop up on my phone about 2 weeks ago that asked if I wanted to sync my contacts or back them up or something to that effect (I admit I was in the middle of something and didn't pay too much attention)

    I said yes, it did it's thing, then I went back to what I was doing.

    SO - now my phone is gone and I am wondering if there's any way of getting my contacts back. It sounds like my contacts were saved/backed up somewhere, but I don't know where or how to get to them.

    Help?

    The backup is on your laptop most likely. You don't also have a desltop PC do you? Who is your carrier?

    I do have a desktop, but my phone wasn't plugged into my laptop or desktop or anything when it gave me that message

    i think they are saved on verizon's website try logging in and check it out, also have your ever back up your phone via desktop manager on your pc ? you can get your contacts back that way.

    I logged into Verizon but it only has saved the contacts for the main phone on the family line. Mine is the 2nd line on the account

    I might have done it with desktop manager (don't think I did though) but that would be on my laptop that was stolen. Never used desktop manager except on my laptop
