Default Blackberry Backup/Restore

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm getting my Pearl replaced tomorrow morning because it's increasingly been behaving bizarely, restarting itself again and again until I pull the battery etc.

My question is, once I've backed it up (once it lets me, it either restarts itself again when I plug it in, or XP tells me it's malfuncioned). Will a restore to a new handset tomorrow restore the OS onto the new handset as well (which could be pointless), or just my saved data and settings?

Thanks

Tom

You can either backup and restore or use the switch device wizard. Either will only re-install apps and data. The OS is not updated! You should be good to go if you have managed a good backup!
