Default Can I backup selected DBs on the Tour using BB desktop software

Please Login to Remove!

My friend has a Tour, and I am curious to know if he can SELECTIVELY backup just the AutoText DB, as I can, with my Bold 9700.

The folks at the phone stores say that they cannot transfer only his autotext DB. and this doesnt make sense to me, if Tour users, can in fact, pic and choose which Databases they want to back up from their phones.

Tour users, can you help out?
