Contacts Back Up??

I am facing difficulty in backing up my contacts using the BlackBerry Link. I don’t think it backs up the mobile contacts. Is there any software or a way by which I can pack up and edit my contacts?

BB Link does give you option to backup your application data, media and settings which include your Contacts on the z10.  If you have outlook, you can also use outlook to edit your data and sync it with z10 with BB Link(USB).  You can also upload you contacts to box(cloud service).

Re: Contacts Back Up??

Hi there,

 

A quick question; does it back up all the linked contacts? 

 

 

Thanks,

Re: Contacts Back Up??

From What I understand, it backs up the entire z10 with settings.

You said "BB Link does give you option to backup your application data, media and settings which include your Contacts on the z10.  If you have outlook, you can also use outlook to edit your data and sync it with z10 with BB Link(USB).  You can also upload you contacts to box(cloud service)."

 

  • Are you sure that backup your settings only will include contacts, and will it include messages, bbm and so on.
  •  Since when you can edit your contacts on Outlook, and how can this be done ???!!

Re: Contacts Back Up??

I cannot find any way to back p my contacts.

 

We put them in manually (500 plus) and had a problem with our email settings which meant the Orange support team deleted the account and the contacts were deleted. We have now re-entered them manually!

 

Blackberry Protect does not support the Z10 and Blackberry Link does not seem to back up the contacts.

 

How do I stop this occurring in the future and back-up my contacts.

 

Also may I ask how I get the facebook and linkedin pictures to come onto the phone as previously?

 

Any help gratefully received
