Question about ghosting S1 to S2
Just found out that I can upgrade from my S1 to a S2. Now, correct my if I'm wrong, but I'm assuming that I will transfer my SIM card from my S1 to the S2.
Using the DM to switch from S1 to S2, I still need to ghost to get all my apps to the S2, right?
You just have to do a device swap in DM and your good to go. Some storm 1 apps may not work on storm 2 but most should I suppose.
But, I do switch my SIM card right?
OP, can you be a bit more specific on why you are referring to "Ghosting" the phone? Ghost is a program for copying PC drives and partitions, it would likely do nothing to the phone except overwrite the onboard storage memory.
If you have a SIM card that you use in your Storm 1 then yes, if you don't use it for overseas then I would ask Verizon or if you do it in store I'm sure they will handle it for you or you can ask them...
As far as transferring your device you want to create a backup file of your storm one and use BBSAK to backup your third party applications. Then you want to use the DM to do the device transfer wizard, if all goes well a lot of your information and settings should hopefully be transferred, if things aren't how you customized them than once your on your S2 load the backup file and restore your third party appz with BBSAK.
It would actually be nice if RIM had imaging software for their phones but it wouldn't really be worth it because each RIM Blackberry model has its own unique operating system that wouldn't run if you imaged it and tried to load the image to a new and differen't device....however something like this would be beneficial for restoring an image to the same device model ....
It would probably be a waste though, as most of the things transferred over already are during the backup/restore phase of the OS load.

Hmm maybe off topic but in laymen terms what is ghosting
