Data Loading Question

I lost my Blackberry 8100 and now have a new 8120. Is there anyway that I can load my old phones backup files and applications onto my new phone?

Yes.  Use the Switch Device Wizard in Desktop Manager.

I tried that but it won't let me because it's looking for 2 devices current and a new. I don't have my old phone

Re: Data Loading Question

Do you have a backup file from the old phone?  If so, just use the restore feature in Desktop Manager and restore that file to the new phone.  You won't get any 3rd party applications but you'll get your data back.
