About backing up and restoring data

You can back up and restore most of the data on your BlackBerry® smartphone and BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, including settings, fonts, saved searches, and browser bookmarks.

If you're using a smartphone, you can also back up your messages and organizer data.

If you're using a tablet, you can also back up your media files.

Research In Motion recommends that you regularly create and save a backup file on your computer, especially before you update any software. Maintaining a current backup file on your computer might allow you to recover smartphone data if your smartphone is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.
