    When you look at BlackBerry storage, Cyber-shots memory sticks, or any other memory card, you will find that these memory cards are very similar to computer hard drives. Such storage devices don’t delete files immediately. The deleted files remain at their memory location until the space is used for storing any other file.

    Therefore, you can recover erased files on your BlackBerry phone. But, here is the most important thing, when you feel that you have deleted a picture which might be useful in future then just stop storing any file or any picture so as to avoid using that storage space. The deleted picture cannot be recovered after the re-use of that memory location.

    The steps involved in the procedure of recovering the deleted pictures on your BlackBerry are given below.
