How do I transfer my data from my old LOST BlackBerry to my new one?

Hi everyone,

I hope someone could help me out...

I recently lost my blackberry pearl 8100 after car accident

( & thankfully I backed up my data the week before);

anyways now I wanted to know how I can transfer my data to my new blackberry curve? (without my old blackberry pearl...)

 

I keep reading about the switch wizard option; but since I don't have my old blackberry anymore (just my backed up data)... What can I do now?

can someone help me?

 

please and thanks

Good question. I think you should be able do a selective restore from your backup data to your new phone. I would not try a full backup to your new phone because of the difference in models.

 

Isn't most of your data sync'd with a PIM (Outlook or the like)? You could just sync with that, and get the information in your new phone.

As posted before, if your data is in a PIM (e.g., Outlook) on your PC, then you can synch with that. Otherwise, you must use that backup file you created earlier. Here's a procedure:
