    Question Ota

    Advertisement



    If this has been addressed before I'm sorry: Can anyone tell me if you get ota programs,what happens if your phone dies? Do you have to go back and try to re-download them again or if you do a backup thru the bb desktop manager do they get saved there? Thanks in advance...

    Re: Ota

    Not sure what you mean by "dies" but if your phone becomes totally inoperable, and you get a new device, you will have to download the software again. To my knowledge, the only software that is saved on your PC are alx files or ones you downloaded using your PC. OTA are somewhat subject to your device.
    That said, if your device is restored to operation after it "dies" there ma be a chance that the programs are still there.
    Hope this helps.
    Also, I'm curious as to what you meant by "dies" LOL.

    Got it. So you had to get a new device.
    In that case, ota stuff will have to be downloaded.
    There's a program in beta now where you can store the email addresses and account info for the vendors from where you got your ota stuff so when the unexpected happens you can send and email to them all at once. I'll get a link for ya in a min (if someone else doesn't beat me to it).

    Yeah everything was tied to the PIN of the other device. You'll have to start over.
