Default Did I messed up my Curve? (Import data from Pearl)

Please Login to Remove!

Yesterday I did a back up Blackberry device data using Blackberry Desktop Manager, and the three data I backed up are address book, SMS messages, and "CUSTOMWORDSCOLLECTION".

Now my question is: Is the customwordscollection is the Custom Word List from the Pearl? I thought so too, that's why I backed it up just in case.

Then I put in my Curve and import that data over;however, Desktop Manager asked me that (something like): Do I want to replace/overwrite all the data on device by these data of address book,sms, customwordcollection?

I believed the Curve has no "custom word list" since it has a full QWERTY keyboard opposite to the SureType feature from the Pearl.

Did the CustomWordsCollection backup overwrite anything on my Curve? Thanks

Welcome to the BBForums.

I believe you are correct, no custom word list was overwritten, since the Curve has none.

The Curve does have AutoText, but it would have stated as such.

It is not that easy to mess up a RIM device. If there is nothing to over write it will not over write. Just remember to never pull the USB plug out while using it.

Also, I make a habit of making a backup BEFORE I do anything just incase the worst happens.
