I just upgraded to the latest VZW OS for the Curve 8330. It didn't go too well. It took two battery pulls to get it to work correctly. Once I did that, it barfed on a certificate error for Google Apps Mail app. I managed to fix that easily.
But none of my mails were restored. All of the SMS, Phone Log, address, calendar.. etc, etc, made it. But not my messages. So I dug into the ipd file using Desktop Manager and sure enough, no entries at all for messages. I don't have another backup.
My thinking is my only other option is to download all my gmail to outlook then sync that.. Can anyone think of anything else ?
