Is there any way to recover my address book?

    I have little hope for a positive answer here, but it can't hurt to try.

    For years, I have been happily using my LG V111 phone without any problems.
    I bypassed opportunities to "upgrade" to another phone.

    A couple of days ago, my V111 refused to boot up. It shows me the big
    Verizon logo screen and then dies just before it would show me my normal
    banner screen. The battery is fine and fully charged. I have tried to
    power it up from my battery, my wife's V111 battery (both fully charged),
    from the desktop charger unit, and from the car charger cord. The phone
    fails exactly the same in all cases.

    I never had a cable to connect my phone to the computer. I wish I had now.
    Maybe then I would have a backup of my address book.

    The man at the Verizon Wireless store said he could move address book data
    from my old phone to the new phone, but only if the old phone could be
    powered up.

    Are there any suggestions on how to get this phone to power up?

    Are there any suggestions for other ways to recover the address book?

    Unfortunately, I trusted the technology too much. When I first got the
    phone, I wrote down every phone number I stored in the book for a backup,
    but later, I just stored every number I needed to remember directly in the
    phone.

    Now that I have learned (another!) lesson the hard way, what do I need to
    make a backup on my computer of the new address book in the new (Motorola
    V60s) phone? I know I can buy a cable, but then what does it talk to? Do I
    need any special software for the computer? Does it come with the cable?
    Do I need Microsoft Office, for instance?

    Regards,
