Spelling doesn’t determine your I.Q.

I backed up my 8100, restored the backup to my 8120. It transferred my BB Messenger contacts, address book, custom themes, all data, applications, etc.
I paired my Motorola H680 Bluetooth headset with my 8120, and then setup WiFi.
All I had to buy was an 8 GB MicroSDHC memory card, lanyards, case, and extended battery.
It depends on what you want to do with your BlackBerry. After getting BES configured with my e-mail, my next step is always to download and install my favorite mobile apps that I can't pretty much live without anymore:
Viigo (for RSS News Feeds)
Microsoft Live Search
GMail for BlackBerry
I hope you find some of those as handy as I do,
Previous post edited to say I used the Switch Device Wizard in the Desktop Manager to move my data, apps and themes from my 8100 to the 8120. I also emailed pics from my PC to the 8120 to move them to the media card.

I agree with bigbinxter, Viigo for sure, Google maps and Opera mini would be a great start. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Email and instant messenger setup was always the first thing I did with every bb I've had. After that I bookmarked my favorite sites. Then I'm ready to go. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
How do you update the firmware? Or that updates when you do upgrades?
T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D

thank you. most of my photos are locked so i can not delete them. i wanted to totally take off all the stuff that i will not and do not need because of the memory issue that i know the verizon 8830 has. thanks.
