P800 stolen. Data backed up though. Can I get it into a P9..

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.ericsson (More info?)

My P800 just got stolen today. Luckily I back up my data fairly often & have
most of what I need.

The big question is - can I upload this data straight into a P910 if I go out
& buy one?

I've still got all the other hardware & software from the P800 - mounting
cradle & Backup & Restore software (version 1.7.2.1) but presumably the new
phone will come with cables & software, so all I really need to worry about
is whether the P800 backup format can be loaded directly into the P910.

    from SE web site;
    Can I make a backup of a P800 and restore into a P900 or P910


    Unfortunately you are not able to make a backup of a P800/P802 and
    restore it onto the P900/P908/P910i/P910a/P910c, or of a P900/P908 and
    restore it onto the P910i/P910a/P910c.
    The reason for this is that they have different data structures and
    different filesystems. To transfer data between the different phone models,
    please use BluetoothT, Infrared or Memory Stick® DuoT. The easiest way to
    perform the data transfer is to use Memory Stick® DuoT.

    This solution is valid for the following product and environment:


    P800


    P900


    P908


    P802


    P910i


    P910a


    P910c

    Data is in a *.ecs file if this is of any more help, and if I didn't make it
    clear enough, it's currently on my computer hard drive.

    Yeah, I managed to find this before my shopping trip - whoever the idiot was
    that decided to use different file & data structures without providing some
    backwards compatibility has lost themselves at least 1 customer that used to
    be very happy with his P800.

    I bought a Nokia 9500 instead. A bit bigger to carry, but the web surfing &
    reading emails is much better due to the wider screen.

    And I'm still carrying my Psion 5mx because the data and apps in there are
    so unique. If Nokia had made the 9500 backwards compatible with the 5mx, I
    would have one!
