    Been using BlackBerry for more than half a decade. I always loved it for options it provided. Link for BB 10 does not have options to keep items like SMS, contacts, and settings separate in a backup file. If I want to backup just the contacts I cannot, I must take a backup of settings and calendar along with. And also to restore I must restore everything. This kinda sucks.

    I don't remember whether the old BlackBerry Desktop Manager for had that capability either, if your "half a decade" experience goes back that far. May I suggest ContactsImEx in BlackBerry World if your real problem is not being able to backup contacts with BlackBerry Link.

    I know what they mean. I always did a full back up on my legacy BlackBerries. Then I picked and chose what I wanted restored.

    A full backup on BBOS would still allow you to pick up very, VERY specific bits of it and restore.

    Link was a all or nothing solution. Now at least it allows you to pick up which apps...

    Maybe it's just a matter of time for BlackBerry to mature OS 10 and Link to its former glory? At least for us CrackBerries.

    Thanks. Can you also suggest on how I could backup only SMSs and restore them? I don't want my account settings in the backup. Is there any way to do that?

    Personally, I use Ultimate Backup. It will backup everything. Or just what you want it to backup. It costs a little more but is often free or on sale from time to time and the developer is proactive in releasing app updates and bug fixes.

    You can find it at http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst...ntent/39592932
