    changing phones and set up

    Advertisement



    I just got my pearl Tues but am thinking I want to switch it for red. What kind of trouble will I have getting it all set up again with email, etc because of the pin or will simply switching the sim card be it? If I give hubby the black one what will I need to do to clear it out for him?

    TIA,
    Andrea

    you can change your PIN via your BIS login - and do a 'switch device' from desktop manager to get everything from your black one to the red one

    I just sold my unlocked white one and am just waiting for my unlock codes from cingular to start using the red one as well. Can't wait, because until I get my unlock codes I'm back to using a razr! It's so tough to go back once you've had your Pearl.

    According to this he has a red Pearl that can be used until it's unlocked.

    Ok the white Pearl is a T-Mobile BB. He unlocked it and used it on Cingular. The red Pearl is a Cingular device. Am I missing something? He shouldn't have to wait to use a Cingular device on Cingular LOL

    He's waiting for his cingular codes cause his profile says he with Tmobile.

    Yep, sorry I haven't been on in a minute. I have tmo service, unlocked my white pearl and just sold it. I have purchased a red cingular pearl but yet to have the unlock codes. As soon as those come in I'll be back on a pearl.

    Haha, this has been an interesting thread honestly... I was just about to quote Erica to say that I think avante is with Tmo, but it looks like he already answered!

    Re: changing phones and set up

    So I finally received the unlock code and everything went well with the unlock. Here's what I'm wondering now.

    Now that I have a unlocked Cingular phone will I still have MY Favs? They haven't popped up yet.
    After trying to do a restore, it won't reload my old themes and 3rd party apps. Do I just have to go get those again? Everytime I would upgrade or downgrade OS on my last pearl the themes and 3rd party apps would still be there.

    Any info would be awesome!

    Avante, did you use the "switch device" on DM ??

    I think it transfers all your contacts and apps, etc.

    Gaz.
