    how do i back up my pearl?

    Advertisement



    I just read a thread from a stacker with a fried BB....that scared the F*** out of me!!!....and it made me realize that I have NEVER backed up my pearl since I got it..and I'm wondering, if I back it up...will it save the games I downloaded, the apps I downloaded, the names on my address book, the themes I got, and every little thing I have added to my phone to make it unique?

    And if you guys can inform me, wut-if anything- does it not back up?

    Thanx in advance

    And to the stacker that has the fried BB.....wow! I'm so sorry to hear that. Pray to the BB god to see if it gets resurrected. And thanx for being such a huge eye opener.

    It should do so.

    But, if you're on BES (no info in your profile about that) you will need to reactivate it with new password.
    In space no one can hear you scream.

    Re: how do i back up my pearl?

    BIS = BlackBerry Internet Service
    BES = the enterprise service (usually costs more because it accesses more types of email accounts, and does it faster)

    As for the backup/restore on Desktop Manager, it will only create a backup of the address book, browser bookmarks, calendar events, SMS/Email messages, buddy list in BBM, phone call log, and phone settings such as profile etc. It does not backup other applications you have downloaded and installed such as games, google talk etc.

    edit: this link might better explain the difference between BIS/BES.

    says you have AT&T
    Their website shows BlackBerry Unlimited $45 (this is BES) and BlackBerry Personal (also listed as BlackBerry Internet Service Plan) $30 (this is BIS)

    got this from another site- BIS operates using a POP3 email account of your choice, whilst BES is directly linked to the mail server in your office. This means that BES allows you to wirelessly synchronize your work mail, calender, memo and tasks with your work email account.
