What's up, Berry lovers!! It's your technology diva, Lois Lane, here, with a little pet peeve of mine.
I need someone to please tell me how it is that a Berry owner switches out his or her phone and loses all of their contacts?? That should never happen. Guys, that is inexcusable Berry behavior, and I am here to bring a remedy to all of you who have suffered at the hands of the contact loss objects of torture.
In the box your Berry came in, there was software. If you got it from Big Red (Verizon), there were two different kinds-- VZ something or other for tethering your Berry and your Desktop Manager software. Please do not ignore software that comes in your boxes, guys. That is like forgetting to breathe!! That is especially true in the case of Desktop Manager. If you have tossed this disk aside, I implore you, drag your ass into the back of your closet and get it. This is why...
With Desktop Manager, you can do the following:
-Back up all of your contacts, text messages, applications, BBM pins and even the exact settings you set on your Berry.
-Should you end up with a new Berry, for one reason or another, all you would have to do is transfer your information from one Berry to the next. Everything, from your ringtone to your background picture, will be identical to that of your first one. You won't even have to update your BBM contacts with the new pin number! Everyone's phone will be updated with your new pin and you have no work to do.
-Perform firmware updates on your device.
-Add and remove items from your phone.
And much more!! So when you are finished reading this, go find that disk!! Should you be unable to find that disk, hit me up and we will find your DM software online so that you download it, ASAP!!
