    As Rajaa mentioned below the ultimate solution is BlackBerry Protect. But this is only if you had it installed in your Blackberry and if it was activated with a Blackberry ID that you have created. The BB Protect will do an automatic backup of your contact, calendar entry and other personal information. But that’s not all, since your phone is lost BB Protect can help you remotely lock your device; locate it on a map, make it ring or display a message. All these are possible from the BB protect website that you access with your ID and personal password. You can restore all your data to a new blackberry but to be able to locate, make it ring, etc, the lost device need to be using Wifi or Blackberry Internet Service.
    If you didn’t installed and activated BB Protect, the other option to recover your data is by your email account stored in the phone. It should normally sync it with your desktop account. So by going to the contact of your email in a computer you can recover only all your contacts.

    From here: - "Do you have a gmail email account on your BlackBerry in which the contacts are set to sync with your gmail address book?"

        So at least you haven't lost your contacts. When you get your new Blackberry, synchronize it again with your Gmail contacts.

    Post this question at the Blackberry user forum, you should get better help there as it is a specialised blackberry forum. However, someone else also posted the same question so I am referencing it to you, if it is useful :
