    So, I was advised here that Ultimate Backup was the best product out there for BB10. Well at $9.99 it is not! A warning to all BB10 devise users, the FREE "Switch Devise" does exactly the same thing! I wanted to also backup Apps on my phone from BBW, but the sham paid for service doesn't do it! It does exactly what the FREE version does! I went with the recommendation of a trusted member! Don't waste your time or money! As a side note, how can we backup our BBW Apps so that December 31st BBW shutdown does not gravely affect us? Thanks,

    Pretty sure you cant backup your apps to bar files and Ultimate Backup is certainly not as simple as the device switch app that is meant to transport data from bb10 to android or iOS

    Ultimate Backup is much better in my opinion than anything to do with Link.

    Link tends to restore the very issues you try to get rid of with a clean install.

    True, but it does backup exactly the same files to an SD card, which is what I was initially looking for.

    Well, I certainly hope so as I own it now! How does Ultimate Backup eradicate errors in the backup?

    It doesn't try to restore hidden and non-hidden settings.

    They were comparing Device Switch to Ultimate Backup, what does Link have to do with it?

    I assumed it was Link's device switch function that was being discussed.

    Device Switch is a BB10 app in BBW and does for free what Ultimate does at a price.

    So what's your take between the two, does Ultimate Backup excel in anything over Device Switch? More features?
    I've never had or used Ultimate Backup so I can't compare...

    The list of items backed up by Ultimate Backup is 5x as long.

    The only thing it doesn't do is restore the phone log which is a bit of a shame but that's BlackBerry's fault, as far as I'm aware as it doesn't allow access to that part of the phone by third party apps.
