Anyway, I am considering switching carriers from AT&T to Cellular South. They have a deal until the end of the month where they will pay the early termination fee with AT&T. They offer the Curve 8830, which has both GSM and CDMA networks. Two questions:
- Any thoughts on this phone vs the 8300?
- Will I be able to restore the backed up file from the 8300 to the 8830?
Go to your carriers store before you move to the 8830. You can check out the new phone and get some hands on before you move.
And yes, do what the previous post said. If your lucky, you can use the switch device wizard if you can breathe some life into your old phone. It sounds as if you will be able to use the Switch Device Wizard. If you cannot and you have a backup, you can do a selective restore of your calendar, address book, bookmarks, and message store using the Advanced feature in the Backup area of the Desktop Manager software.
