    Question Switching from Pearl to Bold

    Advertisement



    Hi I am new here. Have been lurking for a while and finally decided to ask a few questions.

    My husband is buying me an unlocked Bold and I am wondering how difficult the switch will be from my Pearl to the Bold will be. Will I have to upgrade my BB package? Do I just swap SIM cards? Do I have to set up my emails all over again?

    Thanks for any advice you have for me.

    Lucky you!

    If you are on BIS just insert your SIM and you should be good to go (activation should be automatic).

    You're gonna really like your new Bold!

    I should have added: use the Desktop Manager V4.6 'Device Switch Wizard' to backup and copy all your email, addresses and programs over to the new Bold. It makes the transition very, very simple.

    Welcome!

    BIS regular account through your wireless provider as opposed to BES from your employer. And as ErnieH said use the Desktop manager to transfer all data. Please, please first do a backup! Install the latest OS for the bold unto your computer. Go through the forums and read some posts first before you start.

    Good luck on your Bold experience.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~my package is through my AT&T personal account not work. I back up my Pearl weekly. I will look through the post to see how to update the OS before my phone gets here.

    Thanks everyone for all the advice.
