O.S upgrade question
when you backup your phone preparing it for an OS upgrade, are tex messages backed up to? if not what else ISNT backed up??
A normal backup backs up all your settings, data like browser bookmarks, password keeper, messages, sms, profiles, contacts etc but not 3rd party apps or BBM convos. During the upgrade process it does do a backup that includes everything, even 3rd party apps. Once the new OS is loaded and your BB boots up you will see your home screen and then it will restore all your data. Just don't disconnect too early and you should be fine.
Of course these are computers and sometimes glitches happen.....thats why we suggest a backup before you do an OS upgrade....just in case something goes wrong.
