Hi Elena,

I would recommend you to register at talk.maemo.org and/or join #maemo IRC on freenode.net. There are lots of helpful guys there with deep knowledge of Maemo 5 (the operating system your device runs) internals and I am sure they will be able to help you if humanly possible. I recommend you to both register at talk.maemo.org and ask for help there and to join #maemo. The latter most probably will be the fastest way for you to recover your data (and your device).

Ivo

>Briefly, I have been a Nokia customer for more than 8 years with my recent phone N900 bought right after its release in Russia in January 2010.
>I have never experienced any problems with this phone until recently, when I went to the USA and switched on this phone - the touch screen immediately stopped working. Upon my return to Moscow, I called Nokia hot line, applied to local Moscow repair & maintenance centers (authorised by Nokia), however, the response that I got was that the problem is not about the touch screen, but about the operating system and they cannot do anything about it to return the phone to a normal working mode.

>The problem is that I
have lost all the data - the address book, messages, notes, photos, everything. I have never made back ups for my Nokia phones.

>Can you please advise if there is at least a little chance
to retrieve
the data from the phone and if yes, how can it be done?
>Would be grateful for your response.
