    So I backed up my with Bblink cos I need to wipe my phone and after everything I couldn't restore my contact. With blackberry desktop manager I can choose the file I want to backup or restore but with this stupid link u either restore all or nothing. For the first time I regret using bb10 os, I never for once had this kind of issue with desktop manager. Sort this out blackberry smh.

    Probably too late to be of any help now, but for the future, there's an app called InTouchApp that backs up and restores contacts.

    Restore your phone with the backup file (which will restore everything) then backup your contacts with Fire Chest Backup or Contact X (both apps in BlackBerry World), then wipe again. You're good to go.

    Too little...

    Selective backup and restore is in the works for LINK. They might get it next week, or next year. But yes the fact that Link is so limited in the backup area, combined with the problems that doing a full restore causes many - it is a Major issue that hurts the platform.

    I also recommend Firechest and this thread reminded me to do another backup as I added a contact today.

    That means I will start downloading all my apps again. This is just sad.

    it's so frustrating. My battery was draining faster than normal. I get 3hours on full charge I backed up and wipe the phone cos I know it's not normal. Now an getting 6hours which I think is a bit fair am scared of restoring cos I know doing full restore will take me back to that battery ish
