Backup and restore to your media card with PhoneBAKup: Giveaways!


PhoneBAKup looks like a pretty useful app for saving time and energy making backups of your important files. The app lets you schedule daily, weekly or monthly backups for your BlackBerry OTA. With each backup, you can save your device’s data including the Address Book, Task, Calendar and MemoList.

The data is emailed to an email address of your choosing, so if you have a lot of data, make sure you have an appropriate data plan. Also, consider making a separate email address for your backups so it doesn’t get mixed up with your other emails and can be quickly accessed.

PhoneBAKup normally costs $19.90 with no subscriptions or annual fees. There is also a free trial available.

We’re also giving away 20 free copies of PhoneBAKup. To win, comment and tell us what the last app you purchased was.

This application is compatible with the BlackBerry Pearl (8100,8110,8120), Pearl Flip (8200,8220), Curve (8300,8310,8320), 8700 C/G/R, 8707 G/V, 8800, 8820, 8830, Curve 8900, Bold 9000 and the Storm 9500.

    The last app thai I’ve purchased was “Quiclaunch” for my Blackberry 8300.
    I’ve bought it in your “BBCool appstore”.
    The app “quicklaunch” is great also very pleased with the store.
    I hope to win a copy of PhoneBAKup.
    Thanks a lot!

    The last app I purchased was Documents to Go Premium for the o’l BB. I wish I could say that I purchased it from BlackBerryCool apps store - but I didn’t…I am not above a little pandering! ;-))

    I see this backup app as something a lot of folks can use. I hope I am one of them!

    The last app that I purchased for my BlackBerry was “Phone Log”. This quirky little software logs every fone call (incoming, outgoing) details - name, number, duration and sms (incoming and outgoing) - again, name, number.

    - all this on the BlackBerry Calendar - so you know who called (smsed) you or whom you called (smsed). With the SMS, it also tells you what the message was (provided the message is still in your sms inbox).

    Most useful value-for-money app.

    Well.. the last app I bought was QuickLaunch (after a spell with ShortcutMe) after seeing your writeup on it.
    I hope I win a copy of the backup app. It would help the migration between my new BB (bold) and my pearl.

  48. 48 elizabeth Chan

    The last app. I bought for my BB was Alertmatrix. It is an awesome app. That let’s you configure who you want emails to alert you, phone calls, and text messages. I don’t have to be bothered with all the emails, texts, calls. I have all my emails silence except for the ones that are important to me. Love that appl. I have been more productive with my life. I have always looked at my BB whenever I get any messages! Use to waste time on just deleteing them. But with Alertmatrix, I have been very happy!

  49. 49 Mark Lepold

    I just purchased Wabbit. It collects the contact information from the emails and, if you don’t have it, it asks you if you want it. It also updates existing contacts. Great Road Warrior app.

    It is actually Gwabbit, not wabbit.
