My Lumia 800 was just replaced by a new handset.
Is it possible to restore the backup (1-1-2012) from my old Lumia 800 to the new handset?
I tried using Zune for this. No success yet...
I would also like to do this, I have had a faulty handset with ridiculous batterylife, now I have been sent a new phone but I want to transfer all my email settings, linked inboxes, saves messages (personal and memorable) etc but I don't seem to be able to do it?
Is this feature not available for this phone yet? If there is a manual way to do it then please let me know how? (even it's more complicated, I'd rather mess up trying than not atttempt it at all)
I searched the internet for a sollution. Didn't find anything helpful.
Pictures, music, video's en podcasts can be placed on the phone using Zune. This only works if all the media was also stored on the computer. For this you select Instellingen in Zune (probably settings in English) en then select "Herstellen" (Restore?) in the Collectie (Collection?) tab.
Contacts are usually stored by your Windows Live account and can be used on the new phone. In my case I had to edit the contactlist again because all links and previous edited contacts were gone.
I was not able to restore the backup I made for my old phone with Zune. It looks like this is because Zune sees a new phone and doesn't accept it as the Lumia 800 that was previously connected.
All apps had to be reinstalled manually.
I sure hope this one doesn't die on me also.
