    yes, but you still have to load BOTH the 8330 and her device's OS onto your PC(if its different than yours). I have an 8310 and an 8100, and my PC recognizes both when connected to the DTM

    I have 2 bbs on one computer....I gave my 8130 pearl to my son when I upgraded to my 8330 curve. The DM recognizes the different PIN numbers but for me it didn't automatically form a separate folder for the new BB....all the apps for both devices are together...I just know which ones are for which device....idk if there is a way to separate them.....I haven't really tried.

    One bit of advice, when you do a backup, the file names are dates so you can't tell which device the backup is for just by looking at file names. Now when I backup my curve I add the word curve to the file name so if I go to the folder with the backups I know ones with dates only are for the pearl and mine are the ones with curve in the file name.

    I got my 1st Blackberry just this past Christmas....since then I have converted my mom, dad, and son all to BBs

    So far they love them....except my son who want to switch to AT&T for a iPhone.....but that's not gonna happen unless he gets a job, buys his own phone, and pays for his own plan

    You can either use separate folders for each device(we now have 3 in my house) or you can go to the trouble of renaming each backup, etc. I hope this helps and feel free to email me with other issues around this, been doing this for months now!

    I do this with my BB's also. I have a 7100t, 7730, 8100 and an 8120 all on the same PC. I just put the model number in front of the backup to tell them apart. Hope this helps.
