I would use the BB desktop manager to backup all the data first.

Use the latest , version 4.2 SP2

The contacts should remain as long as you do not oerwrite the info accidentally.

I hope this helps !

You said that the contacts are already in the BB Device.
The  BB desktop software allows  you to backup most of the data in the BB device.

No need to sync with groupwise.

I hope this helps !

Just activate the Blackberry on the BES "without" wiping the device and the contacts on the deivce will be synced to the server.

Check the BES server logs and the BB PDA logs

Also check the Logs on the BB device.

also I found this :

Here's what you need to do to view the logs:

Hold down the ALT key.
With the ALT key depressed, type LGLG. The Event Log appears.
In the Event Log, highlight the Event name and press the Enter key. A list of Events appears.
To view details for an Event, once again highlight the event and press the Enter key. An Event Properties box opens (as shown on the right).


I hope this helps !
