    Question swapping out my old Pearl

    Advertisement



    I'm sure there have been a bunch of posts about it, but when searching I didn't find anything. I just got a replacement Blackerberry Pearl and want to move all of my information from my old Pearl to the new Pearl. What is the easiest way to move ALL info (ie settings and prefs) I know i can do a "backup & restore" but that doesn't carry all my info over. Anyone have any ideas? They would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    What kind of info are you looking for? A backup and restore should move everything, including phone book entries, sms, mms, call logs... It does it all...

    Re: swapping out my old Pearl

    Well I want it to move all of my APPs and everything. On my old Pearl I installed some games as well as some extra programs. From what I can see those programs didn't move over. I also wanted the themes to move over if possible, but if not I guess I can not be lazy and re download them.

    Unfortunately, no, the apps can't be moved. But with most free apps, they're downloadable again. With paid apps, the company will usually reissue a license number.

    Did you try the switch device option on the desktop manager? It should move your apps and themes, I think.
