    I had terrible problems today trying to get my Curve to complete a full Backup to the DM. I searched for data on these forums, with some partial success. BUT I went to the BB website and did a search on their database, and found this fix. I followed the directions, and ended up clearing every single database that had memory in it. Now, it really wiped some programs clean, and I had to reinstall a few things, but I am now back running with all my apps and it BACKS UP.

    So, wanted to share my success today. This, from Blackberry:

    Good info. Maybe a mod can put this in the Hints/Tips & FAQ forum.
