Default Reloaded new phone with a back up from two weeks ago...

...and I cannot find my themes or games.

Everything transferred, all my info, but those things. I got my email switched no problem, contacts and messages are all there, but no games or themes.

I searched but I don't thinky my keywords and other searches I tried brought up anything telling.

Third party and over the air downloaded applications are NOT backed up as part of the Desktop Manager backup/restore process.

There is a sticky thread on how to back up OTA/third party apps (not that it will help you now)...

I have my old device still, so I could salvage them I believe. Thanks for the information!


Just finishing up now and everything looks fine, thanks again!

yes you can do the device switch wizard in Desktop Manager and transfer all settings, contacts, emails, 3rd party applications, and stored media (internal)

I had tried doing that initially, it would not recognize my old device (though I only tried once and I was a bit impatient to get my blackbery up and running). Now today it is, so I'm taking advantage of that so I can do this properlly.

I'm on the last step right now and I saw the themes and games being transferred, so I'm happy

Good as Gold! Enjoy your new device. Did you stick with the 8520?

Yeah, they offered me any of the BlackBerrys and I couldn't stray.

It's just right for me. Those couple days without it made me realize how much easier it made my life. Going back to a small screen and using t9 to type was surprisingly hard after three months on BlackBerry.

And I'll admit, I kissed it when I took it out of the box
