Re: restore

If the previous smartphone is not available a backup file can be used

  1. Connect the BlackBerry 10 smartphone to the computer using the USB cable.
  2. At the bottom of the BlackBerry Link screen, press the up arrow to the right of the name of the new BlackBerry smartphone.
  3. Select Restore > Restore from backup file > Legacy Device Backup Files.
  4. Select the desired backup file.
  5. Place a checkmark next to the data to restore to the BlackBerry 10 smartphone. To restore all supported data, place a checkmark next to Restore all data.
    Note: For a description of the BlackBerry smartphone databases, refer to KB03974.
  6. Press Restore.
