To switch to a new BlackBerry device and restore the data from a backup file:
  1. Back up the data from the old BlackBerry device.
  2. Load data to the new BlackBerry device.
  3. Switch your email account to the new BlackBerry device.
Task 1 - Back Up the Old BlackBerry device
To back up the data from the BlackBerry device:
  1. Connect the BlackBerry device to your personal computer.
  2. Use Backup and Restore to back up the data. This will create an.ipd file. For instructions, see the topicBack up handheld information in the Desktop Manager Online Help.

Task 2 - Load Data to the New BlackBerry device
To load the data from the .ipd file to the new BlackBerry device:

  2. Connect the new BlackBerry device to your personal computer.

  4. If the new BlackBerry device had a previous owner, clear all the data on the BlackBerry device. For instructions, see “Type an Incorrect Password in Application Loader” in KB-02318.
  5. In Desktop Manager, use Backup and Restore to restore the data from the .ipd file to your new BlackBerry device. For instructions, see the topic Restore handheld information in the Desktop Manager Online Help.
  6. Once the data has been restored, disconnect the BlackBerry device.
