I'm using Desktop Manager 6 with OS6, and my Desktop Manager won't backup my Word Substitution list (formerly called autotext in OS5). I have about 200 of the word substitution entires in my phone, but when i try to back them up, the desktop manager only shows that I have 3 entries. There's no error message or anything, it just shows 3 entries, when I know i have at least 200. Anyone know how to fix this? I really dont want to have to re-enter 200 entries manually if I ever need to restore my phone. Thanks

It seems a little silly that it cant be backed up since it's clearly in the list of applications you can choose when you click on customized backup. If it can't be done, why even put it there in the first place?? I dont have any blackberries with OS5 still on it, but the method you described is exactly how i got my old autotext list onto OS6, I restored my last OS5 backup and then added all the updates manually. I'm trying to figure out a way to save the word substitution list as a memo (which can be backed up) but I dont want to copy and paste each entry individually, so it loks like i'm out of luck on this one...
Thanks for your input tho )

I saw this phrase from a blog post. On David Yach's. I think this feature is going to be one that gets lost. Copy & Paste may not work, but typing key ones on a bb w/ 5.0 is ok. I am hunting down my 9700's 5.0 handheld code.

This better get fixed. It is one of the main reasons I am loyal to Blackberry. I have over 1000 extra entries in Autotext/Word Substitution. It cuts down my work time in half. I am starting to regret upgrading my 9700 to 6.0. I have invested several hours structuring shortcuts, everything from Account Names to profiles to pricing at the touch of a few buttons. If I happen to break or lose this phone I am going to be very upset to say the least. I can't believe RIM would overlook something like this.

I just went from 18.104.22.1680 to 600 and lost one entry. Last time I lost all of them. Not sure if it is related to the upgrade or me being on BES.

OMG -- You are still having this problem? Thank you for the post, but So suprised that RIM has not addressed. Ofcourse, You will have to resort to creating a new Dbase of Word Collection & AutoText. I don't believe they are going to resolve.
