    Default Recover Gmail Address & contacts.

    I bought a Kyocera Rise for my wife (big mistake - piece o' junk). She broke the sliding display off of the keyboard - ribbon and all so I transferred the service to an old LG Optimus. But I have no idea what her Gmail address was to be able to get her contacts. Is there anyway to recover the email address or transfer the contacts. The Rise still works, it just doesn't have a screen. I could plug the USB port into a PC and probably read it that way, but I have no idea how to get to the contacts. I don't think we exported the contacts to the SD card.

    When she signed up for her gmail account, did she give a backup email?

    I kind of doubt it, but perhaps. We signed up for it through the phone just to get the thing to work. I never signed into it from a desktop.

    Was the Gmail address a totally random set of letters, or was it some variant of what she usually selects as an email address? I would go to any Google login page and pick the "Forgot password" option, and start entering the usual username that she picks. Maybe you'll hit the right one.

    I found I had put in a backup email, so I entered it on this web page and I am good to go. Thanks for jogging my memory.
