(One member reports that their Blue Angel shows "Serial" at the top and "V2.07" at the bottom.)

When the USB sync cable is inserted into the phone and the computer, "Serial" will change to "USB", provided that the phone detects the connection.

What are Type I and Type II ROMs?
A Type I ROM is a ROM that can be easily modified with the xda3nbftool.exe to match the Country Code or Language Code on your device so you can flash it.
A Type II ROM is a ROM that when used with the xda3nbftool.exe it will gererate a Header Error and thus can not be flashed by you (unless you are aware of certain tricks that you can read about on wiki)
What is the difference between the PDA2k (XDAIIs, Qtek 9090, SX66) and PDA2K EVDO (Sprint 6600/6601), Blueangel and Harrier
- The PDA2k (Blue Angel: PH20B, PH20B1) is a GSM phone, with GPRS and wifi.

Basically, you get the one that is right for your mobile service provider. In Canada, for instance, Rogers and Fido use GSM, and Telus uses CDMA.
Should I do a restore from backup after I have upgraded my rom to a new version?
Short version N0
Long Version; If you restore a backup after a rom upgrade you are going to downgrade your software to what you had before the upgrade. Thus do a rom upgrade, sync your outlook, re-install your applications, re set your local settings.
Yes you can do it another way but at the momment you are reading BlueAngel For Beginners.
