    My Z10 screen cracked, and for a few weeks I'll have to use an old 9300 before switching the Z10 screen.

    I have a backup of my Z10 (through Link), and was wondering if it was possible to restore this backup onto my 9300 (through Blackberry Desktop Software)?

    When I try to restore using BDS, I receive the notification "The selected backup file is invalid." I don't need all the same settings or anything, mainly just contacts, saved notes, WhatsApp, etc.

    I found a lot online about backing up a 9300 and restoring it to a Z10, but none with the reverse situation.

    Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated; thank you.

    Depends on how full of a backup you need - if it's just contacts, for example, you can probably export those on the Z10 and import on the 9300 (not that I know *anything* about BlackBerry prior to the Z10). The whole app thing though isn't going to fly.
