    Lost 7290, cant restore addresses to 8300

    Advertisement



    I recently lost my 7290 and had backed up the data using the "backup" utility but not synch'd to outlook or similar. I have bought a new 8300 to replace the 7290, and the "restore" function restores many things - messages etc... but unfortunately not the all important address book. How do I restore the address book from a 7290 v4.0 backup file into a new 8300?

    Thanks

    Have you tried Backup/Restore from the Desktop Manager, then select Restore, and then the backup profile?

    In the DM using Backup/Restore, click on the advance button and you can do a restore on select items from a back up file. Maybe this will get the job done. If not try to go into your address book (in Outlook) and import the addresses from the backup file you created from your 7290.

    Hope this helps.

    Before restoring data to a BB, it must not be associated with a BES. So, wipe the device, connect it to the DM, cancel the request to use it on a BES, restore the data using the DM, then activate it on the BES.

    That should do it.
