    Re: Wireless backup

    The BlackBerry's data that is not part of the host email system (email, calendar, address book, memo pad) is backed up to the user's BES account, and is restored to any device that connects to that account. The PIM data is "restored" (synchronized with the device) from the email host.

    Here is a list of Databases on the BlackBerry wireless device (KB03974).

    Here are the BlackBerry device databases that are not wirelessly backed up by the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (KB11101).

    No, not anything - only what is specifically listed in the link above. The most annoying thing that is NOT backed up is the Content Store - where Pictures and Custom Ring Tones are stored. And although it says that Device Options are not backed up, some are. RIM really needs to update that link.

    Can someone please clarify for me how to restore browser bookmarks? When I do a full backup and connect the device I can click on the browser bookmarks, but It wont let me restore them to the new device. The arrow is grayed out.

    Outside of Emails, Address Book, Contacts and Calendar what else can we backup wireless?

    Yes! I have learned to backup the content store for myself or my picky customers (does that make me picky, too?) And, yes, a lot of settings are backed up now with 4.1.4 that were not a year or more ago. What I would love to see is the ability to NOT restore some databases...like phone logs! Have you ever sat there for over an hour watching some guys 2000+ phone logs come down during Enterprise Activation (over their slow Nextel 7520, no less)? Oh how I wish BlackBerrys had auto-phone log clean-up.
