Sync address book and calendar 8830 with 8130 via DM

I just changed from using an 8130 and now use an 8830.  I assumed I could use DM to backup my 8130 and then restore it to my 8830.  However, when I do this, many items do migrate, but not 2 of the most important ... my address book and calendar.  Both are personal devices and are not linked with any work email server, so that's not the issue.  I do notice that in the backup file from my 8130 the address book is called "Address Book - All" and similar with the calendar.  However, with the 8830, it is labeled as only "Address Book".  I'm wondering if this is the problem?  I'm hoping someone can help me get my address book and calendar migrated to my new device.




BTW, I already tried wiping the new 8830 ... that did nothing.
