OTA backup of settings on BDS 6.2

Does anyone know if BDS does automatic over-the-air backup of device settings. BES 5 regularly backs up things like alarm, password keepter data, browser favourites etc. Does the same exist on BDS?


This would be very good otherwise the users would lose all their settings when they change device.

As far as I know it does not. The documentation doesn't mention this as a feature and there are no settings or policies on BDS that could be used to control this.

That's what I feared.


I could use Blackberry Protect for the private stuff, but what happens to Work related stuff. For example bookmarks in your work browser?


I hope Blackberry will come up with something in future releases.
