    What data is saved when performing back-up?

    Advertisement



    The title of this thread may be decieving. Let me explain, my better half dropped her bb in a tub full of water and we got a replacement. The original still works but it goes kinda wacko at times. i was wondering if the glitches would be saved when i performed a back-up?

    I think settings and databases are saved. I did a backup with my BB that was dropped into a stream,it had some major glitches too.when i installed the backup done from the bad and put them on the new one things were fine.

    Re: What data is saved when performing back-up?

    Ok, I've already called and had the new phone activated so the new sim is activated. I just want the address book but when I was about to start the transfer it says it will delete all information on the device and replace with corresponding file or something like that. Does "all information" include things that would disrupt my service?

    It should just overwrite the crrent databases like the addressbook and such.

    The glitches won't be saved, as far as I know.

    What about service disruption?

    The only time you may lose a signal, in my experience, is when everything is being transferred back to the device and when it reboots after the process is complete.

    I found it! Under the advanced options in the submenu for backup/restore (desktop manager) you can select what you want to transfer, preetttttyyy cool!
