Default Partial backup and restore

Please Login to Remove!

I had a Curve 8330 that worked great for a year and a half. Recently the buttons stopped working and I was eligible for an upgrade so I got a new Bold that I have been using now for a couple months.

There are a bunch of important MMS and SMS messages I would like to backup using the desktop manager and restore to the new phone but I'm curious if anything important will be over written. Will this merge the two sets of messages or will I just end up with the old set on the new phone?

Thanks!

If you do a Restore, the data that you choose to Restore will OVERWRITE the corresponding data on the device.

You might want to instead do a backup of both devices and search for a program to MERGE the resulting IPD files on your computer and then restore THAT merged file to the new device.

I'll give that a try. Thanks again for the suggestion.
