Re: software Update blackberry 9800

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

As you will find when you continue to research, the results will be variable. The process is supposed to automatically take a backup of your device before starting and restore from that backup when the process succeeds. But, this is, as I say, how it is "supposed" to work. There is no substitute for good manual backup processes to protect your critical user data. You can find full instructions for backups via the link in my auto-sig on this post.

Good luck!
