I am not exactly sure where to take this problem for it is likely a problem w/ no answer.  A friend of mine has a Wizard or pocket schedules w/ everyone's phone numbers and addresses on it.  It does not have a hard drive like a computer so standard datarecovery software should not work.  Is there any professional service or someone I can turn to if money is not a factor in returning my friends addresses to the face of her address book?

Any leads will be greatly appriceated,

Here are a few links to Data recovery specialist. They do not come cheap however.

AJMan,
If the battery fails, I think you're out of luck.
Likely, the pocket device uses memory that can store the phone numbers only as long as a battery keeps it saved.
Is that what happened?
Regards,
Ralph
