Help needed please!!!



I have had a Z10 for a few months and today went totally dead. Had to install OS again and all my contacts etc... were lost. The only backup I have is from a migration file from a BB Torch 9800.


Does anyone one know how to move this across as the bulk of my contacts will move over?

Re: Help needed please!!!

If you have the 9800 backup file, you can connect your Z10 to the PC via USB cable and run Link.

In Link, choose Backup/Restore and in the Restore window, click on the "legacy backup file" to show those backup files and click on the most recent or the one you choose.
