    Question Transfering Data To A Replacement Bb

    Advertisement



    Whats up folks! Ok, i should be getting my replacement Pearl within next few days...

    What happened? My trackball just stopped scrolling down, well its not responding anymore...


    The question is: I WOULD LIKE TO TRANSFER EVERYTHING ON MY CURRENT BB TO THE REPLACEMENT PEARL IM GETTING.. DO I GO TO DESKTOP MANAGER, AND USE THE SWITCH DEVIZE WIZARD? OR. JUST BACK IT UP AND RESTORE?

    IF SO, DO I ALSO GET TO KEEP THE CONTACT LIST ON MY BB MESSENGER?

    Hope to hear answers from stackers who knows, or people who have switched bb's.

    Other than that im getting screenpatronous as my screen protector, dont like the shieldzone anymore, theres like a gooey stuff on the side of the screen and peels out easily..


    Peace. and thanks

    The easier way is to backup and restore. It will save your contacts, messages, 3rd party apps, etc. I've done this 8 times LOL

    I mean, I don't have to contact each software company to get my licenses transferred? To a different PIN?

    Erica, I just wanted to add...It didn't work, but I got it done! Had to contact ALL of my 3rd party software suppliers. But SHAPE and Magnic have a license reset page, that is killer. Thx again!
