So lately facebook on my blackberry has REALLY been bugging me. I would read message threads, and then go and try to find them on facebook on my computer and they would be missing. It turns out that when you delete a facebook notification of a message in blackberry, it deletes the entire thread. ugh!
So today I'd had enough. I tell myself, I really don't
I go playing around on my phone and figure out how to delete facebook. What could possibly go wrong? So I go to (note, do NOT do the following) Options --> Advanced Options --> Applications --> scroll down to facebook and click "delete". It does it's thing and needs to be rebooted. Sure.
About 15 minutes later I am scrolling through my call log and notice a LOT of numbers... and no names. It doesn't quite register and I think about how many people or places I called recently who weren't in my phone. hmmmmm. There was the bridal dress shop for bridesmaids dresses, the dentist...
I take a closer look and realize there SHOULD be names there. In horror I quickly click to my address book and ... it. is. completely. empty.
8 years worth of contacts, gone.
I called Verizon and that bump on a log was absolutely NO help. He suggested I reinstall facebook (yeah... didn't work).
Of course, a good idea WOULD have been to get Backup Assistant on (your) blackberry devices. Hindsight, huh? Doesn't quite help me now with all 3 contacts I have.
On the bright side, I have been meaning to do some "spring cleaning".
Time to get all my important contacts back. This should be fun.
Side Note: You CAN sign out of facebook on your phone. While the app is open, click your blackberry button (the one with the dots on it), go to options and (der) logout.
I'm still sitting here smacking myself in the head saying "stupid, stupid, stupid".
