Getting New Bold and Need To Switch Device on DM
OK. I searched and found quite a few threads on switching devices but nothing that really answered my question...
Do I need to completely uninstall DM 4.6? It is currently associated with my current PIN.
Also, if I do delete DM how can I restore settings on the new device without having to do it all manually?
One last thing, I tried to "switch device" on DM but it said "no devices are set up for synchronization" or words to that effect...
Back to Google for more research...
Thank you fellow stackers in helping a BB-stupid member.
You don't need to uninstall DM. You should just be able to us the switch device wizard within DM. There is a thread in the FAQ link in my signature with instructions for using the Switch Device Wizard. Do you have your Bold yet?
No. That's the issue I think.
I got the DM to work after rebooting my box (XP Pro with SP3) but it asked me to hook up the new device.
I'll be doing a one for one exchange; trading in refurb Bold for new Bold (paying $50).
Ah, since you won't have both devices you can't use the wizard, then.
Make a back-up of your current device in DM, then when you get the new one, do a restore. Do you have a BIS account? You're with AT&T? If so, then all you'll have to do there is log into your account and go into Change Device, where you will enter your new PIN and IMEI numbers, resend service books and you should be up and running!
I wasn't sure if having multple BB PINs associated with the DM would mess things up.
PS-I like your avatar
You're welcome! No, the DM differentiates devices by their PINs.
