    Things to do on new 8320

    Advertisement



    OK, just got my unlocked T-Mobile in the mail. Thank you Santa!

    My Pearl 8100 is with ATT w/unlimited data(BIS). I moved the SIM card to the 8320 and looks
    like all is well.

    Have not run the new software yet but have questions.



    Should I re-send the Service Books?

    I am not seeing my contacts; is there a easy way to import them from my Pearl?



    What else might I do at these early stage to insure a happy BB?




    Thanks,
    Bukzin

    hook up you 8100 to desktop manager and do a back up. then plug your 8320 and do a restore. and yes login to your BIS account. it 'should' ask if you want to change the PIN on the account. re send service books.

    Just so you know you will probably have problems with some of the services such as MMS and possibly SMS as AT$T doesn't have the service books available to fully support the 8320 on their system. Most of the fetures work without problem, but there are some apps that have no resolution and can be a deal breaker for some as the service books do not exist on AT$T, as this device was not natively theirs.

    Not sure what you mean by 'change PIN on the account'.

    This is the 4 digit PIN that I assigned to the Pearl, that I now need to assign to the 8320?



    Thanks again!

    The change PIN option is when you connect to your BIS account with the new blackberry so the system automatically detects that it is a different device so it will ask you if you want to change the PIN from your old Pearl to the new PIN of the curve so that the curve is now the device to be used with your BIS account. It's just giving you the easy option of changing devices. In order to get your new PIN for the curve just go to Options and then Status. The info you will need is PIN: and IMEI: in order to switch the device. Hope that helps.

    I am going to be traveling in Mexico and would like to move my SIM card between the Pearl
    and the Curve.
    How might that effect my 'changing device' options?

    only one will receive the emails so decide which one you want to use. the emails follow the PIN not the SIM card.

    I do this all the time switching from Pearl to Curve when the situation arises when I will be doing more viewing of email than sending on my trips.

    1. Change your PIN you assigned on your BIS web site account

    1. re sync with your computer if using outlook for personal/business data

    done.

    which software?

    Shall I use the old (maybe 10 months) Desktop Manager that came with
    the Pearl or load the new disc that came with the T-Mobile 8320?



    Merry Christmas!

    Re: Things to do on new 8320

    I did the backup and am now at the Cinular BIS site to 'change device'.

    Seem to keep getting the 'wrong user name, try again'.


    Help!

    Re: Things to do on new 8320

    OK, got into the Cingular BIS site, changed device. Ran DM did backup and restore but
    still did not get my address book and downloaded OTA apps to my new Curve.

    Any ideas?
