    Call log to show names not just numbers

    Does anyone know of a setting or a regedit to have the call log show the names of your contacts, not just the number.

    Wow, I guess my contacts got all deleted from loosing to much charge. does anyone know how to back up their contacts to SD or something?

    welcome. there are a few ways, in Outlook if you have it. copy the pim.vol to where ever you want to backup the contact (pim.vol is in the root of your Q) or you can use Jeyo Companion to maintain, add, edit and backup your contacts.

    Backing Up Contacts

    The Q has persistent storage to prevent losing data when your battery dies (older Windows Mobile devices didn't), so I'm guessing that something else happened.

    There are various ways to back up your Contacts:
    • To Outlook using ActiveSync (or the equivalent on the Mac)
    • To Verizon's servers using Wireless Sync (if you're on Verizon)
    • Using Sprite Backup (which backs up your entire device)
    • By copying \pim.vol to your memory card
    Pick the one that works best for you.

    Funny, mine did the same thing last week. I had plugged in to my office laptop to get a charge and activesync decided it was a new phone and deleted everything.
