Default Does Backup/Restore restore settings as well?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I'm getting a warranty replacement in the mail so if I back up my old Bold will everything transfer over including my 3rd party apps, my ringtones, and most importantly my [b]settings[b] that i have spent so long configuring? Basically, will it be the same phone and the icons in the same places etc?

Also, should i check the "back up my on board memory device option?"

Thanks so much in advance.

The backup/restore will NOT backup 3rd party applications. To do what you're asking, I would use the Switch Device Wizard within DM. It should restore all that you're asking. Regarding ringtones, are they stored on your media card?

The switch device wizard should do what you're looking for.

If you want to be extra sure. Do a regular backup, and then follow these steps to backup your 3rd party apps.
