    Two BBs and One PC

    Advertisement



    I have two BBs (8100 and 8300) each with OS 4.2.1.109 and 4.2.2.175 respectively. I use the DM to backup my Pearl and didn't do so with the Curve. I'm thinking of upgrading the Curve OS to 4.2.2.184 but not sure whether I should do it in the same PC where I backup my Pearl. Will there be any issues if I do the upgrade? Will there be any conflict with two different BBs and different OSes running in the same PC? Any ideas/infos is kindly appreciated.

    You can do that, I have a 7100i and 8703e and I use them both on the same laptop and desktop without issues.

    You should have no problems there as the Desktop Manager knows what BB you have connected. I have 3 different ones and never had a problem!!

    How sick am I?...

    I'm using five different BB's with the same computer & they all get along better than I do with the neighbors barking dog....

    So you will be in great shape using two BB's on a single PC!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Next year I will have 3 or 4 BB's (7100t, 8100, newer Pearl, and/or newer 88xx) on one PC. But now I'm only using 2 on one PC (7100t and 8100).

    Thanks for this post. I've been avoiding synching my 2 on the same pc for fear I'd mess something up.

    Just curious: when you synch your 2 BB to the same pc, do they both have the same data on them and is there anything you recommend doing before doing this? Thanks for your help.

    I personally think the whole point of having something like my curve is to keep from having to juggle multiple things like that, however, as a gadget-head, I must applaud you! If you're "sick" then so am I, and I'm not looking for a "cure"!

    Having said and done that...I did the "many BBs (8707G, 8100 and two Curves) and a PC kind of thing" a few hours ago. Am I sick or what..? Probably not.
