    Help Transferring from one BB to Another

    Advertisement



    Hi, I have an 8100 Pearl and am getting the new 8120 Pearl today and I wanted to know if you can transfer themes and 3rd party app from the 8100 to the 8120? How would I go about doing that and can it be done?

    I tried using the device wizard to do this from my 8320 to my husbands 8320 and I could not get it to transfer the apps over. What was I doing wrong. I also tried it using the sync as well. Any help or a point in the right direction would be appreciated. Thnx

    Hmmm, well I did that, so I guess I will have to try it again and see if it will work.

    The switch device wizard should do it for you. I just did it from 8100 to 8320 but 3d-part aps that are licensed to a specific PIN won't transfer.

    did you try a selective restore?
    i have never had issues with the switch device wizard either but have had issues when upgrading/downgrading of losing 3rd party apps.

    I did it! No problems at all, and even the bPlay themes that I bought have transfered over (crossbar, I thought that would be a goner) Everything is working great. I'm LOOOVVVIINNGG the 8120 right now.. Thanks everyone!
