    I'm changing my service provider from Sprint to Cingular (replacing my Sprint Treo 650 with a Cingular 650) and I'm wondering what I would need to do in order to port my existing data over to the new phone as completely as possible.

    I use BackupBuddy 3.04 to do a daily backup of my phone. Are there files specific to Sprint that would cause a problem on my Cingular phone? I'd like to retain my SMS message history, phone logs, etc if possible. Don't mind re-installing all of my apps if need be.

    Thanks

    Nothing, I'm planning to sell it on eBay or to someone that makes a decent offer. It's in mint condition with everything that came in the box. I've had it since June of this year.

    I made the same switch. When I tried a straight across backup restore, the phone crashed. So, what I did was restore the files one at a time, and if a file caused a rest, I would skip that file. Once everything was copied over that would work, I backed up the phone again to make a good Cingular backup file.

    Any suggestions on which files I would need for my SMS & phone log history? Those are the main things I would be interested in

    I'm not sure whether there are any compatibility issues to consider (CDMA vs GSM), but SMS records are kept in Messages_Datbase and the phone log is in PhoneCallDB.
