    I had my Bold replaced by a new one from my carrier however I tried to restore my latest backup file and despite it restores address book, calendar and profile settings, I cannot find my previous theme, applications, etc...

    Any suggestions?

    when you did the previous back up, did you back all third party apps? If you didn't that might explain why your theme is gone.

    I had left the default settings which was "Back up on-board memory" + "Back up all device application data"

    I did not ever find other setting...

    It's weird, cause previous time I wiped my handheld and restored all data everything was back as normal.. And since then I was backing up following the same steps..

    Actually you need to run the switch device wizard to back up the third party apps, sorry but I can't provide the link for the step by step on that right now

    There is a tutorial on using the Switch Device Wizard in the Technical Support Blog in my signature.

    ::edit:: Here is the link.

    The prob is I've already lost my prev device; let's just hope that some aapplication settings are still on my phone memory so that I don't have to setup every app again! Learnt my lesson though
