Default Battery and data retention

Please Login to Remove!

Does the 7100 have backup power or something to retain data if the battery runs down? Haven't seen this answered before.

All BlackBerries use a form of "NVFS" (internal flash memory storage) -- Your data do not get lost when you remove the battery or the battery get run down.

That's why you almost never hear complaints about things like lost addressbooks on a BlackBerry, like you may for most models of PocketPC's and Palm's. Everything is stored to flash on the fly.
