My Device: pearl

first backup

I have plugged my blackberry pearl into my pc for the first time. I have blackberry desktop manager installed. If I back up the phone, will I lose the contacts, etc that are already on there?

Please ignore the other user, he doesn't know what he saying (honestly, I don't know what he's saying either)!

 

No, performing a backup is DEFINITELY recommended and doing so will NOT delete your contacts. It only backs up what is on your device now.

 

If you are asked to upgrade any device software, ALWAYS perform a backup like this, first.
