    Re: whats the best way to WIPE my device of all data?

    i did a backup on thursday with tech support from T-MO
    (because of dead speaker)
    all the stuff would be on there.

    i havn't wiped old device yet.
    any suggestions

    should i back up the old one again?

    i just did a restore to the new pearl...
    should i use switch devices instead?

    I feel like a rookie now with all my questions...lol

    if you want everything up to date i would backup and then load everything on your new one. Everything should be good to go on your new one once reloaded.

    Edit: there is a switch device wizard on the Desktop Manager. I've never used it. You could try that. Good Luck!

    so use the restore for the new, not switch device?
    (just to be positive)

    some downloaded apps may not come through they will have to be reloaded the old fashioned way
    I have never done it so I can't answer many questions, just the ones I have read.
    desktop manager has a help section, check that out, i'm gonna for my own knowledge.
    post back with the answer or I will whoever reads the answer first.
