I had a 9000 Bold, I fully backed it up using Desktop Manager. When I wanted to restore the file onto my 8800, it restores everything but my address book and blackberry messenger contacts. Any ideas why this is? Thank you
it doesn't error out or give an error. I have checked using the backup/restore and it says address book 109, but when i try selecting it to transfer the font is greyed out not allowing me to select it.
Go into your Address Book hit the menu key go to Options do you have multiple address books in there? Go into the Address Book listed and see if Wireless Synch is turned on and check the number of entries.
If there are entries listed in there, then go back to main address book hit the menu key and choose Filter, make sure nothing is checked.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
It seems the adress book I have can not be imported to the US version from the EU version phones.
That might also be that the US phone is upgraded to the 4.5 software.
I found an old backup from my EU phone and reverted to that - very strange as I havent had any problems between any blackberries before even the storm could be easily restored/backed up - I guess its a flaw in the 4.2 software on the EU phone.
You know how to force an update - or reset the whole phone so I can upgrade the EU phone to the 4.5 version?
Thank you for your help!

--- some tries later:
Couldnt totally wipe the device to reinstall a new OS - no idea why. It just wipes data and reloads the 4.2 software.
Apparently the Storm upgraded the use adress book data base so it cant be restored to any BB 4.2 version?
Hmm guess this is a relatively new problem reverting to 8800 from a storm haha
and yes I downloaded the 4.5 Telenor swedish version btw.
