Microsoft announced that, now when you log into the “My T-Mobile” site there’ll be a recovery tool to restore contacts you may have lost during the recent Sidekick service outage. This tool’ll enable you to view the contacts you had on your device as of October 1. With a few clicks and a confirmation, you’ll be able to restore these contacts to your Sidekick. If you’ve recreated some of the same contacts on your Sidekick since October 1, you can choose to keep both sets of contacts, merge them, or just keep the set of contacts now on your device. You may also edit any partial or complete duplicates on your Sidekick after restoration. “We’re making solid progress on the next phase in this restoration process, including your photographs, notes, to-do lists, marketplace data and high scores,” announced.
