Windows Mobile Device Center – Deleted Contacts

If you are using Windows Vista or above and also Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Smart Phone, you would have definitely stumbled upon Windows Mobile Device Center.  It is a one stop place for synchronizing your phone data with your PC i.e. Contacts, Tasks, Emails, Calendar etc.,

Today, while I was setting up my new phone, I accidentally deleted the SIM contacts and worst, synchronized it with my PC using the WMDC and gosh, all the contacts from my Outlook got removed as well.  It was frustrating and kept me nervous over the next few minutes.  Then, I did a bi tof research and finally looked into the “Deleted Items” folder in the Outlook.  There all my contacts were there.  I quickly moved them back to the Contacts folder and also saved my years of contacts.

Well, this post is to help you find it like me, if you happen to end up in a situation like me, so if it helps, it solved the purpose.

Cheers !!!

Well, this is applicable only if you already have your Outlook configured. On the clean installation all your contacts just disappear without any chance to restore...

I don't like the latest technology innovation. These windows devices didn't even pass the testing level. Some of them were put in commerce even if they contained errors. I still think that the cell phone and the telephone are the best devices for communication. Like for instance the virtual call-centers do not work from the organization’s building but from different geographical locations — sometimes from home, sometimes from other countries. The virtual call-center agents may work in different groups from organization’s various locations, or they may work from their homes — individually for a company or indirectly as agents of a call-center outsourcing firm. The flexibility of working from home at a desired schedule as a result of the Internet and globalization have led people throughout the world to choose this type of work.The benefits of hiring a virtual call-center are numerous. The obvious reason is that customer-service representatives are much cheaper when they are located in other countries and work for a fraction of the cost. But there are other benefits as well.

Is there a way to have an auto backup so that is the same mistake is made again, which is easy enough to do no addresses are lost.
