Upgrading to a new device...
Due to a hardware issue (ear piece is smoked), I am going to upgrade my Pearl 8100c to either an 8110 or 8120. It has been a while since I changed devices. What are the general steps to switch devices? I know to back-up the old device and do the device switcher using the desk-top software. Will all my emails, contacts, calendar entries, 3rd party software, etc switch over to the new device? Anything else? thanks.

Use Desktop Manager's Switch Device Wizard, and it's a no-brainer!
The Switch Device Wizard moved everything from my 8100 to my 8120 in about an hour. Themes, emails, BB Messenger contacts, preferences, applications, custom wordlist, etc. I just had to enter the APN and resend the service books.
If you on BES will it transfer that info or do you have to reset up?
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~wired, BlackBerry will automatically do an Enterprise Activation, or you can do wireless EA. Don't freak when you end up w/2 Mailboxes. One is original and will disappear when messages age out.
