    Hi everyone! As with everyone else anxiously waiting for 10.2 to arrive, I have a few questions.

    I've read that restoring from 10.1 to 10.2 can cause issues. Is this true? I'm asking because I always like to wipe everything before updating to a new OS (I've been doing so since my BlackBerry 9000).


    Assuming it does, should I upgrade, backup once on 10.2, wipe and then restore?


    What is the best way to avoid duplicate entries i.e. contacts (synced with outlook, gmail, work email, local contacts, laptop), fb, twitter, bbm now that i've taken the time to organize my contacts.


    Any help will be much appreciated!

    I've been wondering the same, although an official OTA update should not cause issues. I have also considered the update, then backup, wipe and restore... but not sure whether it would negate the supposed advantages of the wipe.

    There have been issues with restoring to leaked versions of 10.2, but in theory those issues should not be present when an official version is released. That said, if you are doing an OTA upgrade from your carrier.. there is really no reason to backup/restore.

    As for your desire to wipe clean and restart.. that's only a thing if you choose not to restore.. if you restore after your wipe, you are just reloading everything you wiped, so the whole wipe/restore process was just a exercise in futility or you..

    I also question the old wipe and restore.

    Back on BlackBerry Desktop Manager, I only backed up a few items (bare basics) now we don't have that luxury.
