[Switching device] Where are the saved messages?

Dear blackberry support forum,


I recently switched from a Curve 9320 to a Q5 (using blackberry link if I remember). However, I don't know where I can find the saved messages (I had on my 9320) on the Q5?

I am sure it's something very simple, but I can't find them...


I would be grateful if you could help me.

Re: [Switching device] Where are the saved messages?

The saved messages would be in a backup of the Curve you did with Link. You'll need to plug your Q5 in to your computer and restore that backup to your Q5. 

If you're asking how you can view those messages without restoring them to your Q5, you can't unless you use special software. Otherwise they're viewable only from a BlackBerry phone.



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy
