What settings are saved by BES?

Hi There, I was wondering if anyone who is on BES 10 has ever done a device switch yet


On the OLD BES 5 - if i got a new device and i activated it - all of my settings, ringtones, shortcuts, phone logs, etc etc would be pushed to the new device, as these were backed up authomatically with BES/BB Config


We are now running BES 10 and i currently have a Z10.  I am looking at upgrading to a Q10 - and i am wondering, what settings will be copied over to my new device when i activate the Q10.  For example, i spent hours linking contacts together (My Address Book & Linked In), All of my profile settings?  Call Logs ?? etc etc


Does any one know?

Re: What settings are saved by BES?

not much is backed up right now, you can use BlackBerry Protect to back it up and active sync will restore mail
