| | How to load old settings on new phone?
Please Login to Remove!
Hi all, I haven't been here in a while because my 8830 was stolen. So today I finally received my replacement 8830. So my big question is: how do I add my previous data to my new phone? The other information you'll want to know ids that I did a complete backup recently using DM (files are called Backupxx.ipd and LoaderBackupxx.ipd) and also backed to my Mac, so that I'm well covered, though i'm using WinXP right now. The handsets are identical except for the PINs (I believe). I want to make sure I do this right so that I don't wipe my old data, but I'd like to copy as much as possible to my new phone. I realize I'll need to use DM, and the Switch Device Wizard options don't seem to fit my situation, and I'm unsure which option would be best using the Backup and Restore function.
I've RTFM, and used the SEARCH function, but haven't had muck luck. Thanks in advance for any help and advice!
