    Hi, I've decided to purchase a Classic to replace a 9810 that died on me. Repair not possible. I do regular backups of my Blackberry using BB protect and BB Desktop Manager. I know there is a way to migrate data from an OS7 to OS10 smartphone, but is there any way to restore backed up 9810 data from Desktop Manager onto a Classic? Or would I need to purchase an OS7 smartphone just for the migration? I need to restore contacts, bookmarks, and MemoPad files.

    Thank you in advance

    I don't remember what protect backs up but I think you can restore from that.

    If you have already backed up your legacy device on BlackBerry Protect then when you sign in your new BlackBerry 10 device, go to BlackBerry protect under settings and that where you can restore your previous stuff into your new device by clicking restore.
