    Download and install Desktop Manager 4.2 SP1* and use the Switch Device Wizard. It will transfer all your data and migrate third party apps when possible. Plug in your 8703, start the wizard and follow the directions. The whole process should take an hour or less depending on the amount of data and number of third party apps you have installed.

    Note that some software is licensed by its PIN or other unique device identifier and will need to be re-registered. If you're on a BES and Desktop manager does not have a network connection to the BES server, you'll need to perform an Enterprise Activation to re-establish your connection to the BES.

    * Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 is available, but the (slow) download is over 100 Mb larger than SP1, and the installation takes more than 200 Mb more than SP1 because of the addition of Roxio as the Media Manager. Roxio is VERY invasive, and overkill for what essentially boils down to copying files to an SD card. It also does NOT play nicely with Vista. SP2 brings no new features or improvements over SP1 as far as Desktop Manager, BlackBerry Device Manager, or drivers go. If you're a fanatic about having the latest drivers, you can install SP2 and select a Custom Installation and NOT install any Media Manager.

    I think you've stumbled into the wrong forum. Digital D is on a Mac, and Desktop Manager doesn't run on Macs--that's why this thread is in the "Mac & Blackberry" forum. Good suggestion, though!
