Default Restoring SMS from backup

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Guys !!

Need some help here.

I have a backup of my old blackberry curve, Now I have purchased a Blackberry bold 9700 and have received some sms on the the new phone. I need to restore the messages from my old phone backup.

I have tried it using desktop manager, but it is overwriting my existing smses. I want to merge my old and new sms.

any ideas on how to get to do it.

This program should allow you to merge ipd files.

Make a backup of your current device and then use this program to merge the 2 files.

Free download ABC Amber IPD Merger, combine multiple IPD files into a single file
