    Restoreis great because it loads a lot of settings back... I just wanted to add that if you are connected to your company email through a BES your IT department can help you to activate the new device and it will load your contacts, memos, task and get your company email going. For your personal email (BIS) you can go to the site that you log into and and change your PIN number to activate the new device.

    OK, I had 3 previous backup's and did one today. Does the current backup automatically override previous one's???? Now it gets stuck when I'm trying to restore with an older backup.

    Each backup creates a new file based on the date, unless you do more than one a day. As to getting stuck on restore, how long are you waiting for the restore to complete?

    Hope this helps.

    Also as mentioned if you are on a BES server, its not necessay to contact your IT dept if you have a laptop from the company, because youre logging into the server its easily done via the desktop manager. Just connect your device to the PC and it should prompt you with the device changed to allow it to use the new Pin no. Hope this makes sense if youre on BES...

    SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, new question! lol, My phone hasn't got here yet, but I needed all my phone numbers. So I connected my wife's and I also backed her stuff up. Is there a way that I can add all her numbers on the phone without erasing the numbers that I just put on the phone??????
