    Good thing you asked before going any further, this is critical content.

    All of your messages, email, contacts and settings should be backed up on a regular basis. That will insure you can rebuild your device, if for any reason, something goes wrong.

    The Backup and Restore Tools are part of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. You can install that from a BlackBerry CD or download it directly from BlackBerry Support.

    Install that software and do your backup before you continue.

    thing but yeah. ...
    Two seperate operations, not related.

    What you really want to do, upgrade your Storm software to the most stable current release, that will make a World of difference.

    When you check back, with a good backup, I will show you where to find a link.

    yayy thanks for the help!
    ummm couple of questions though. i did do the backup
    thing for my blackberry using blackberry desktop manager.
    then i looked at the files and it only has 3 folders. 1) blackberry
    2) home 3) system. i checked each one and it doesnt
    really have anything... is that normal? o.o
    secondly umm my blackberry storm 9530 is already at
    .148 so is there another update out? or is that the best?

    .151 is the latest release and kind find it here in the forums. Also seeing as you are new I would highly recommend you take the time and learn everything you can about CB and BB alike. Start by reading the BB101 Lecture Series, How to use SEARCH, How to Increase File Free threads. You can find links to these threads in my sig. Also read up on all the Tips & Tricks threads as well as the how to threads.

    Welcome and Happy Learning!!!
