i have been using an Android for the past.... 2 1/2 years. Suddenly I felt like I want to go back to my BB and I dusted off my Torch 9800, inserted the SIM card, microSD and fired up the phone. Synched everything with the files I still had on my laptop except .... the files I had in the "Password Keeper". Those files are now on my Android phone but I had no problem transfering it via bluetooth on the BB 9800 microSD card. i have no problem accessing those files but I don`t want to leave it on the microSD card. I can cut or copy & paste any of those files but nothing seems to open them...doc to go, spread sheet, memo pad, etc.
But that`s not my concern... In order for me to have all those files in the "Password Keeper", do I actually have to re-type everything again? Is there an easy(er) way to do this?

If you have a backup of your Password Keeper database , then you can restore those using BlackBerry Desktop Software , Please refer to this Knowledge Base :

Thanks for your reply.
I got that part ... whatever I had saved on my laptop, it got back on my Torch. But like I mentioned, I have used an Android phone for a number of years where i also had password protected files. Now, I transfered those file on to my Torch via bluetooth - no problem, except that they are saved on the microSD card. I can transfer them from there on to the "Device" but from there I have no way of "cut & paste" those files anywhere else. I can`t open them in "Documents to go" nor "Spread sheet" and I can`t cut and paste them into the "Pasword keeper" either
So...again...my question is: do I actualy have to re-type all that information into the "Password keeper" or is there a way to "move" them there?

Our BlackBerry Backup files are stored as .ipd files, And If your backup are in other formats then above method will not help. On our device those Password keeper database are stored on your device memory so simple cut and paste to a media card will not serve your purpose.
If those password protected files are stored in another format then I think most easiest is to simply re-type or re-enter those into Password Keeper application on your device.
