John, I did PM you. If you upgraded from 2003 to WM5 I would only restore my personal data etc from the Sprite backup. I would not restore programs. I would reinstall all my programs to be sure the registry settings are clean and correct. Also your old version of Sprite will need to be upgraded to the WM5 version. See Sprite
Don't be disappointed about having to reinstall software. It is optimal to have fresh program installs when you upgrade the ROM. You could restore the entire Sprite backup and see if things work. The worst thing that could happen is you would have to hard reset and start over. I recommend only using your data which is selectable in the Sprite Restore advance menu.
I got your PM, thanks. I'm only tring to restore my personal data(sorry for the confusion). I do have a clean new OS. I don't appear to have Sprite on the phone and I've been told it's not provided in the new upgrade so I'm at a dead loss as to how to restore it. File Manager is not an option since it also does not appear in the OS.
The first message I get at the Sprite url you sent is: 1. Download the upgrade file utility for your Smartphone version from this location GetUpgradeData2005_SP.exe
When I attempt to run it I get the message that it's not a valid Win32 app
It seems that I need to somehow access the SD card from the phone
get Sprite backup added to my progs(how to do that?)
anyway ta for your interest
