    Back up/Restore from 4.0 to 4.1 software

    Advertisement



    My dillema is I seem to have a lot of issues backing up 6280's & 7290's with 4.0 software and then restoring that data to a 7290 unit with 4.1 software. The browser goes away and the HRT's have to be re-registered, the messages are unable to move over, etc.. Has anyone ever ran into this? It seems like the versions aren't compatible and I recieve error messages like, "unable to write application data" or when choosing the .ipd file today I received, "Not a correct database file/version found". This is happening with both Cingular and T-Mobile 4.1 software. Its really driving me crazy because I'm afraid to send end users BB's with the 4.1 OS if they are updating and just doing a SIM swap. I find myself downgrading every new unit I get in to 4.0 software just so people can keep their messages.

    Any help is always greatly appreciated. Thank.

    Hey, thank you. This is definitely the best answer I've gotten yet because when I come to think of it, I always hit "yes" to switch the PIN being used before the restore process begins. I really hope this does the trick.

    Thanks again.
