Does Blackberry Desktop Manager backup Texts when you select 'BackUp' ??

I couldn't figure out wether it backs up your text messages or not... Thanks.

Re: Does Blackberry Desktop Manager backup Texts when you select 'BackUp' ??

Hello,

 

This KB documents all of the databases on the BB, which the backup/restore process handles:

  • KB03974List of all databases on the BlackBerry smartphone

 

Further, if you were to do a selective backup/restore, you'd be able to see that same list of databases affected, along with the quantity of data in your particular case:

  • KB23680How to back up and restore BlackBerry smartphone data using BlackBerry Desktop Software 6.0

 

Good luck!
