Question Backup Cingular 8100 Pearl & Restore to Verizon 8130 Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have a Cingular 8100 Pearl, but will be moving to a Verizon 8130 Pearl. Can I use the Desktop Manager to backup my Cingular 8100 Pearl and then restore everything to the Verizon 8130? Thanks!

yes, you can... or better yet use the Switch Device Wizard app located in DM. Works well. If you don't get all your third party applications that way, then use restore > advanced and just do restore your third party apps.

and...

The steps say to uncheck User Settings and Data, what if I want to backup and restore setting like my ring profiles, wall paper...etc?

do a back up first, no matter what. You can always restore (selective restore) after your 8130 is up and running.

Question

I got my applications and profiles on my new 8130, but not my ring tones and pictures. What do I need to do to get all of that? Or is there no easy way? Thanks!
