Back up question

When I back up my curve 8330 to the desk top manager does it back up all of my downloaded applications. I want to make sure so if I ever have to swap out phones all of my applications can be loaded on the new phone.

No (as of DM version 4.6).  I wish we had this option, but the Desktop Manager "Backup and Restore" applet only backs up device data (contacts, messages, settings, etc.), not applications.

 

There is a way to backup applications using the "Device Switch Wizard."  It is discussed on the CrackBerry site (and probably elsewhere).
