I just got a 7290 (and wiped and replaced the OS, as discussed in another thread) to replace my dying 7230. I have the backup files from my 7230 and would like to restore my 7290 to have my old addy book etc. The option is not available when I open the Desktop Manager. I know where the backup files are. I also do not see the option to transfer the files directly between the phones.
Can I restore my 7290 with the 7230 files? How?
Solved! Go to Solution.

When you have done backup actions you should get *.ipd file as a result.
Usually this file named as: (12-02-2009).ipd
date in braces and ipd extension.
Connect your blackberry to desktop computer via USB-cable.
Run Blackberry Desktop Manager.
Select "Backup and Restore"
Select Restore option.
Select ipd file with saved data inside.
And restore data to your device.

What version of Blackberry Desktop Manager (also known as Blackberry Desktop Software) are you using?
I recommend to download and use the most recent version of Blackberry Desktop Software.
For now it is version 4.7
You can download it here:http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/
Select Blackberry Desktop Software WITHOUT Media Manager
Before you install downloaded BB Desktop Software, do the clean uninstall of previous desktop software application.

YESSSS! Thank you SOOO much for your time! And fast replies! We're just getting ready to go on a trip and I wanted my Berry up and running. Even a stay at home mom of 2 little ones needs her Berry!
Man that took forever, all the downloading, installing,uninstalling. No idea why Bberry has an older version of the Desktop Manager (it was 4.0.1) to download for my device. Oh well. It got done.
I really. REALLY. Appreciate it!!

Do you have a backup of your device from before the loss of the data?
