    IT actually blows up!!! Just teasing.... just backup before you do it and all will be good. It will all get restored in the update. Be patient though it takes a LONG time.

    EDIT: Here's directions if you need it. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...rade_your.html

    No everything will get restored back to your phone. Some settings might get reset to default but your applications and address book will be put right back where you had them.

    Re: If I Update?

    when you do a backup it will back up
    address book entries
    bb messenger contacts
    sms/mms/or emails( that were sent or recived at the time that you did the back up)
    media(ringers, pictures)
    memo pad entries
    password keeper
    browser entries and bookmarks
    and device settings

    it will not back up your themes, or any 3rd party applications.

    hope that helps

    I updated the os in my 8800 and lost all of the entries in my 3rd party reminder program and had to re register the others.
