    Z30 on 10.3.1
    I want to wipe my Z30, but I don't want to lose all my saved browser saved links. Will I lose they?

    Real bummer right there, I suppose you can't even export them and load them back in.

    A security wipe removes all of your data from phone, including saved bookmarks and other settings. If you wish to restore this data on your phone after performing a wipe, create a backup using BlackBerry Link prior to performing the security wipe, then once you've turned the phone back on, completed the initial set up, and signed in with your BlackBerry ID, then you can restore the backup that you created. There are options in BlackBerry Link which allow you to choose what data to restore to your device.

    Yes, a securty wipe will take your device back to a "factory fresh" state. All your data, including browser links will be gone. There is currently no way to back those up separately. If I recall correctly, the browser links are contained withing "settings" of the BB Link backup, so you could restore thoseonly after a wipe. However, glitches in the settings are what many users are trying to get rid of with a wipe -- so that may defeat your purpose.

    Depending on how many links you have, it may or may not be feasible to paste them into an email, a document etc.

    Yes, but I wish to load 10.3.1.2744 so I won't be able to install the back-up.

    That will depend on what OS you're on currently. You can restore a backup to an equal or higher OS than the OS on which the backup was made.

    If you're currently on 10.3.1.2726 and load 10.3.1.2744, you will be able to restore the backup taken from 10.3.1.2744.
