created a new IT policy for just my device and it worked. made sure i disabled ALL wireless sync and wireless backup, restored the info. then switched IT policies back and it went fine.

I was going to ask if it was the PIM databases to restore. You can usually delete the Desktop [SYNC] Service Book, restore the data and then undelete the Service Book.

In any case, nevermind then.

Wirelessly posted (My blond BlackBerry)

I don't remember if my BBM contacts have ever restored....but I've never really looked. I usually just do an Advanced restore from the backup.

yep but the phone wouldnt allow the advanced restore. it would grey out everything that was actually linked to the BES.
