    Backup Question


    Simple question that I can't seem to find the answer too: When I perform a backup does the backup include 3rd party apps? And if this is true would that mean that if I were to somehow lose all info and data on my Curve I would simply need to simply restore my Curve and it would be like I last had it right? Thanks in advance!

    I have never had any luck, I have tried it a few different ways too!
    Someone told me they did it, though.

    Pretty sure that backups do NOT include third party apps.

    Because if you switch devices....

    Lets say from 8100 to 8300, and just restore from a backup of the 8100 to the 8300 none of the 3rd party applications will transfer over.

    I have yet to find out if any of the OTA downloads are ever stored on your PC once installed on your device.

    That's one of the drawbacks of the Blackberry. I loved my Palm for that. I could hard reset it and with a click on my PC made it work exactly as before by uploading all applications and settings. If this device wants to grow even more this will be one feature that will have to have.
