    Default help please! moving from 9780 to 9900 & don't wanna brick it!

    • Çan anyone steer me round how to transfer & what not to transfer using  Desktop Manager.
    • I read a few months back os7 has issues with data stored from previous outside (like os6-5-4 ect).
    • Has the problem been solved by os7 having recent releases or otherwise? FYI: the article I read previously was to port only contacts & use bbID to reload old fav's programs vs port using  Desktop Manager. anyone's feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    • I love my 9780, but want to be faster using the 9900 touch screen. Also, any issues with the 9900 &  PlayBook being bridged? I'm looking forward to your feedback, fellow crackheads. THX ahead of time!

    Hi, I have switched from 9700 to 9900 in summer and I restored just settings + native data like memos and passwords from the Password manager, then I synced my contacts, calendar and mail via Google and restored SMS via BB Protect. I recommend installing apps from App World because you save some space (unused apps, support files, logs, settings etc) plus you get the latest version. BBM restored itself successfully after signing in to my BlackBerry ID, so I didn't have to use a backup from my memory card. Hope this helps you, good luck and enjoy your new Bold, it's totally worth the upgrade even with BB10 coming

    Just make sure you re-install your apps on the 9900 and NOT transfer them over. Also, make sure you upgrade your 9900 to the latest OS 7.1 through the Desktop manager.

    You will be okay if you just transfer over messages, photos, contacts. DO NOT transfer 3rd Party apps. That will cause a major problem.

    Many thanks to both replies! If anyone else has any insight, it'd be appreciated. Any hicups using a 9900 to bridge with the  PlayBook?

    I would suggest a backup to be taken via BB protect ( contacts, calendar only) and restore on the new device and fresh install your apps and settings.
    A fresh install and No baggage from an old OS will Always be good for your new device !

    The 9900 runs very well bridged to PlayBook. My pair runs many days without a single hitch. Once the 9900 is all set fire up the PB, connect the pair, and enjoy.

    Password manager. It's a password-protected BlackBerry native app for holding all your passwords for logins etc.

    1UP on the clean transfer. Desktop Manager allows for that to be done also.

    If you don't mind, I'll paste a list of what to transfer (in desktop manager, hit the menu and click Restore..., then click Custom and check one or more of the following that is important, such as calendar, address book (contacts), bbm, bookmarks,memopad, etc) and skip the rest:

    Addressbook - All
    Address book Options
    Alarms
    Attachment Options
    Autotext Data Version
    BBGroups (aka BBM Groups)
    BIS acccount data (saves from re-adding e-mail addresses)
    BlackBerry Bridge (only for Playbook tablet)
    BlackBerry Messenger
    Bluetooth options (skip for clean state)
    Browser Bookmarks
    Browser Folders (safe to skip if you don't understand what they are)
    Browser Options (skip for clean state)
    Browser Push options
    Calendar - all (skip unless you use all the time)
    Calendar Options (skip for clean state)
    Camera Options
    Clock Options
    Device analyzer options
    Diagnostic App options
    Enhanced GMail plugin (skip if you don't use gmail, or don't need it at all)
    Full-Predictive Options (basically direct or predictive keyboard settings)
    HTML email options
    Icon arrangement (for home screen, app folders)
    Input method switcher options
    Input system properties
    Key store options
    Keystoremanager
    Mailbox icon management
    Map global options
    Map locations
    Map settings
    Maps
    Memopad options
    Memos (memopad)
    Message list options
    Messages (only if you have an @carrier.blackberry.com e-mail address you depend on)
    Messagenger options (google, wlm, yahoo, etc. Used for IM apps)
    MMS options
    Mobile Network Options
    Mobile Hotspot Options (leave unchecked if you configure it after OS update yourself, as I do)
    NFC options (for NFC devices only)
    Options (obviously what this is for, leave unchecked for factory defaults)
    Phone Options
    Phone Call logs (skip if not a necessity)
    Predictive Multitap options
    Profiles options
    Recent contacts (e-mail autocomplete, safe to skip this)
    Search options (universal search)
    Service book (skip since your carrier resends them each time an update is done, only keep if absolutely needed)
    Shortcut settings
    SMS messages (only if you absolutely need these)
    Sounds (sound profiles)
    Spell check options
    Spellcheckable options
    Suretype options
    Tasks, Tasks Options (skip unless you use that app)
    TCP/IP (APN)
    TLS options
    Theme Settings
    VideoRecorder options (Video Camera app)
    WLAN profiles (Wifi)
    Voice Activated Dialing options (only if you use this)

    This gives you more options. You don't have to include everything, as it's only meant as a suggestion.
    Flamers, don't even try, I have my waterhose ready
    GNU/Linux distros of choice: Ubuntu, Mint (or anything based on debian that's still geared towards beginners and isn't too bloated).
