    I believe pkgbakup will only restore to that phone.

    1.) it's still the same phone, i'm trying to backup my jailbroken apps {i do it about once a week}. there was just an update for PKGBackup last week, but i backedup right after the update, so i don't *think* it's related to that

    2.) all the info is stored in a "contact" in your address book, so it can be loaded by another phone as long as i restore my address book. worked when i went from my 3gs to {this} iphone 4

    Are you trying to backup, if so try both Phonebook Contact route as well as the DropBox option. If that fails, uninstall pkgbackup, reboot and install it again.

    I believe you may find it impossible to restore from it though.... I have had so much trouble w/ PKGBackup that I uninstalled it.

    Resolved. There where 2 updates for PKGbackup today. The second update fixed the problem :)
