Default What is this "Backup and Restore" you speak of?

Please Login to Remove!

I hear people talking about "backup and restore". Is this an application? I have a 8330 and it's not on my device. I'm using 4.5.0.77

I need to backup my contacts but I don't know how. I'd also like to put them onto my sd card if possible.

It's part of BlackBerry Desktop Software, which gets installed on your Windows PC.
It's on a CD-ROM which was packaged in the box along with your device.

It is not possible to store them on your SD card.

...and backing them up there won't do much good if you lose your BB.
