    Backing Up My Pearl

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to Pinstack, and new to owning and using a BB.

    I have seen previous posts and threads about "Backing Up" your BB. I have a Pearl, and I LOVE the phone !! more than my girlfriend LOL
    How do I go about doing this? Not sure where to even start, it may be something simple I'm missing or over looking, but I want to be sure......I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    Thanx

    install desktop manager from the cd or download it from here https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22 (select the 4.3)
    connect your device once program is running via usb
    click back up and restore button and back up the device

    You need to use the Desktop Manager. It should've came on the Cd that was with the phone. If not, you can dowload it from RIM's site.

    Once installed, its a fairly easy option. Use the "backup/Restore" function. Thats it.

    Re: Backing Up My Pearl

    Welcome to the stacks beeshabo. This thread should help. There is a couple of different ways to back up. As guyheavensent advised you do need the BB desktop manager loaded onto your pc. hope it helps.
