    Now that I have my 9700 all set, all ringtones assigned, custom pictures assigned to contacts, 3rd part apps, and all the settings adjusted just the way I want...Will Desktop Manager Back ALL of these things up? Even the settings, custom rings assigned to everyone, etc?

    If not, what program is the best backup program (hopefully free)?

    Yes, unless something goes wrong during an update. I've never had a problem with it personally.

    A nubee here, when you say Blackberry manager are you talking about the disc that comes with the blackberry that you install on your computer?

    odd.... i use DM to back up my applications.

    Open the DM > switch Device > switch Blackberry Devices > let it do the one way sync and back up your Applications....

    Then do a search on your PC for your PIN number..... you'll find em [applications]

    I did a back up from my BB to my computer and it appears that my media didn't get backed up... unless you can tell me where it would have went.
    That is why i am having an issue with my lost (very important videos)
