    Did you do a back up before installing?

    Normally whoever is upgrading/changing software on a BB is pretty knowledgeable(pretty) so he should have a backup, if not then you my friend are up quite a creek

    Really?

    A quick reading of posts around here shows that a large portion of users do not do backups unfortunately.

    I always do backups. Doesn't matter how many times I upgrade or change, something could always go wrong. I sure hope you did a backup!

    i am as it seems ... quite an *** !!! but i just got the BB and i just sort of use it as a regular phone and i didn't know about the backup or that data could just be wiped off... and i don't keep stuff on my SIM so i guess i am lost !

    All your contact should be on your sim card.

    I have to disagree I always do a back up ,when I make changes and when I do not. I have them store on a removeable drive plenty of space.
    Just curious if you have a computer and if so do you make backups on it ?

    I only had a Blackberry a month "btw" the first thing I did was install DM while my Blackberry fully charged then made backup.

    I would have to agree with this.

    Most don't even know what Desktop Manager and a Backup/Restore is when they come on here looking for a solution in their first post.

    Have you done an OS upgrade recently? That would have made a backup.
