    How to do a Device Backup to SD Card?

    I used to be able to do this on my older Bold. I don't seem to can find SD backup option. Only to computer option is available. I wonder why they would remove this feature on newer models.

    Since that has never been a native option, I will go ahead and say you need to go to BlackBerry World and download an app (like you did on the Bold and don't remember).

    You'll find "the option" in BlackBerry World.

    Also, very BAD practive not wiping a second hand device clean after you buy it.

    Great info have you used Backup Pro? Or has anybody used it? Don't mind paying the $5.00 but sometimes the more you spend on an app the worst it is.

    I "assume" you know your signature information does not show up when viewing via CB10. Just another fix that will never happen. Did not know these helpful links. Thank you.

    Well then you have two options: Connect to WiFi or allow BBWorld to download over carrier data (swipe from top, settings).

    Yeah, they had the brilliant idea of not using the forums signature and instead allowing people to add custom ones.

    No I had no. I don't really rely on local backups, everything of importance is safely in sync so device lost is never equal as data loss. I am positive you can find some threads here about that though (might take a bit of searching, so I suggest doing google - "keyword keyword site:forums.crackberry.com", faster/better than the forum search engine).

    The signature and the search function is only a few of many.

    Searching on CB is like searching for the needle in a hay stack.

    But thanks anyway.

    I will put this out there: downloaded ultimate backup several weeks ago. It has performed very well. It will back up to SD card, email the back ups to you in zip format and has ability to encrypt the zip files.
