    I have had my Siemens SL55 phone for a year. Switched it on this morning as usual, and my entire phone book has disappeared :eek: I didn't delete it or do anything different to normal, and my call lists (missed/received/dialled) and texts are still there. Anyone know why in the world this might have happened and if there's any way I can recover it? 100+ numbers I have no other way of getting hold of... :mad:

    Did you drop it?

    I dropped my Sony Ericsson T610, and it forgot all of the words I'd taught it

    Siemen make notoriously unreliable phones, you never know what to expect with them.

    BTW: Does anyone know what the message centre number is for Vodaphone? Is it the same for all mobiles.

    Nope, nothing like that. It's had a few glitches recently where buttons have randomly stopped working and then started again but I don't think I've done anything to it.

    Did you save the contacts on your sim's memory or to the phones memory? If its to the sim memory contact your operator, because they actually keep your phone list on their systems sometimes, worth a try i suppose!

    Thanks for the tip jak The contacts were split between both sim memory and phone memory, which is why I just don't understand them all disappearing together!

    God them phones are awkward, the menu's are crap. Anyway, try going into your phone and checking the phone numbers, there are two ways of storing your numbers, on the phone or on the sim. what is sounds like is that you've changed the setting's so that it doesn' read the numbers from either the sim or phone. Just check to see where your numbers are stored, failing that the software on the phone may be old, and unstable.

    Thanks very much for the advice There are 2 options under the contacts menu, one sim-based, one phone-based, but I've tried switching between them and both are just saying "Book empty" when I try to open them, so I think the numbers must be well and truly gone for some unknown reason.

    Weirdly, though, you can store people's birthdays alongside their numbers in the phonebook and it'll cross-reference them with the calendar - and all the birthdays are still coming up on the calendar even though there are now no names in the phone book :confused:

    Piece of s**t

    Have you another mobile phone? Place your sim in it, and see if you can copy your numbers across. It may be a fault with the phone itself.

    Does anyone know whether the 7250i has a composer? Can't seem to find one. It won't let me send picture messages either, keeps sayning 'check multimedia settings'. Is there a simple solution?

    What network are you on? You need the MMS and GPRS settings sent to your phone, with regards to the composer I'm not too sure.

    Vodafone. Does it cost anything to get them sent?

    For your GPRS settings go to:

    Alternatively go into Phones4U or the Vodafone shop, and ask them to send you your MMS and GPRS settings, what happens is a text message is sent to your phone, and when you open them, you are prompted as to whether you want the settings saved, choose yes. It's free.

    Though be aware that the sending of picture messages to other netwroks isn't 100% up an running yet.

    Cheers
