Saving contact information from my 8300?

How can I save all my contact information from my 8300 and transfer it back to the replacement 8300 that I will be receiving from my corporate office in the next few days? Most of the contacts are backed up on my email contacts, but for things like pictures and other contact information saved on the device? If you have any ideas, please let me know. It is my understanding that you can upload your information to the Blackberry site some how, but I am really not sure.


Thanks ahead of time for any advice you can give here!


Best Regards,

Simply make a backup of the old device using Desktop Manager, then restore that backup on the new device before activating it on your BES (if necessary.)
