Need help backing up data+apps
I'm about to exchange my 8900 under my carrier's warranty, an I need a bit of help backing up my data and apps (all the stuff that's on the onboard memory and not on the media card or SIM card) to my desktop for easy transfer.
I have BB Desktop software installed, but I'm not familiar with its use.

Backup and Restore
Desktop Manager doesn't Backup your applications ( 3rd party apps )
To backup your BB's memory ( Phone memory only ) >> Start the Desktop Manager and connect your BlackBerry via USB cable. Click on Backup and Restore then Backup ( save the file on your Desktop ). That's that, now your phone's memory is backed up.
To Backup 3rd party Applications, download and install on your PC an application called BBSAK ( attached ). Re-Connect your BlackBerry and select NO to ''Enable Mass Storage Mode'' popup. Now, Run BBSAK and click on '' Backup Apps ''
using DM > Run Desktop Manager ( Go to Backup and Restore then click Restore and choose the backup file which you've saved on your Desktop earlier ).
using BBSAK > Run BBSAK and click on Restore Apps. OR click on ''Modify CODs'' tab and then click on ''install Cods''. Direct it to the Backup folder in C:\Program Files\BBSAK\Backup and select all file then click open/ok
Best of Luck

LOL, apparently I can do all this with RIM's BB Desktop Manager's "Device Switch Wizard". It even imports/exports third party apps. But still, to be on the safe side, I'm going to back up using both the DM and BBSAK. Thanks guys.

This is from an old thread, but you can use DM to back up most third party apps, just need to follow the directions here:
Tried it the other day and it worked fine for a work around, and as long as you follow the directions exactly.Da Bear

Is there a way to fire off 1.7 without it checking for updates?
From work, I cannot get to Rimgeeks, so if I fire off my 1.7, it checks for updates, sees and update, but then cannot complete the update since I don't have access outbound, and then I have to uninstall the program from Control Panel (as it is already partially uninstalled at this point......)
