    Question Best Way to Migrate Data/Programs/Settings from old P900 to new P910i?

    Well the subject kinda says it all, but for those that don't read subjects:

    What is the best way to migrate my data/contacts/programs/settings/etc off my old p900 and over onto my new p910i?

    Do i just do a Backup, Export and Import thru the SE's Backup and Restore software? or do a Backup and Restore? (I'm just afraid of something on the p900's OS screwing up something on the p910i's newer OS.)

    Help me out guys? Much thanks!

    I did the following:

    1. for contacts/notes/diary/To Dos, I used Outlook to sync with the P900 and then the p910
    2. For Handybank I just copied the databases to my new 256MB Duo Pro
    3. For Handybank I used the PC version to sync with the P900 and then the P910
    4. For Images, Videos & MP3s, I copied eveything to my laptop and then onto the 256MB Duo Pro
    5. For eBooks (Mobipocket) I had to re-download from www.fictionwise.com as I needed a new PID for secure eBooks

    I re-installed all the apps. For Epocware apps, the reg codes did not need changing. For Symbianware apps I was given a new reg code. For Ezitap, I have not established if I will be given a new reg code. Mobipocket Pro, the reg code worked.

    Re: emails & SMS

    I did not migrate my SMS (my emails are copied in Outlook) to my P910. I think there is an app available that allows SMSs to be stored on the Duo card. You may wish to use this app before the migration. Also I had to reset all my GPRS and POP3 settings.
