Exclamation My Screen Is Broken, Need Help To Transfer Apps

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,
The screen on my Blackberry 8900 is broken and I am already going to receive a replacement, but I still need some of the information on my broken phone. I was wondering if there was any way to transfer some of my applications (Password Keeper, Memos, etc.) via computer or any other way. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

If you have Desktop Manager installed you should be able to backup the broken Blackberry and then restore the data from that backup to the new one.

3rd party applications will have to be reinststalled to the new device.

I think what you are really wanting is the Desktop Manager and the switch device wizard.

Actually, using Desktop Manager and making regular backups of your BB is highly advisable anyway.

You want to move the actual applications of password keeper and memos?
This doesn't need to be done, as they will be on your new device, as its the same device.
If you want to DATA from those apps, then use the backup part of desktop manager.
