How to get your old text messages on new BB

I just upgraded from the 8830 to the BB Torch, I wanted to start fresh with settings and auto text so I didn't want to go with the conventional way of getting everything from my old phone to my new one.

 

 I got all my tasks, calendar, memo, and contacts by syncing with outlook.

 

My question is this, is there an easy way to import all my old text measages? I use them a lot for referrence, and would like to have them available on my new phone.

 

Thanks, Irvin

Hello,

 

The method would be to, from your old BB, take a full backup:

  • KB12487 How to back up BlackBerry smartphone data using BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows

Then, conduct, to your new BB, a SELECTIVE restore from that backup file, selecting only those databases you desire:

  • KB10339 How to use BlackBerry Desktop Software to restore data to a BlackBerry smartphone from a backup file
  • KB03974 BlackBerry smartphone database list

 

Good luck!
