    3rd Party Apps on Storm Replacement

    Verizon is sending me a replacement for my Storm. Am i going to have to contact all of the makers of my apps. to get them installed on my new bb?
    I see a lot of them have my pin # on the order form they sent me.

    You can use the switch device wizard to transfer the apps to your replacement. However any apps that are licensed via your pin (you paid for an app and had to give your pin) you will need to email the vendor and see if they will transfer the license to your new pin.

    You beat me to it

    As far as app that are associated with pin, he can just email mobihand customer service, and they will change the pin and all apps will be updated with new activation code

    Striker there is a little easier way with MobiHand

    If you haven't switched phones before log into your mobihad account page Here at the top of the page you will see an option to change your pin. Click that and enter your new pin number (be sure to use capital letters when entering) this will switch all your apps immediately so you can start using them. Mobi allows you to do this once, after that you will have to email them. On my last replacement it took them 3 days to return my email, which meant I couldn't use any of my apps for those 3 days.

    If he had bought a few from CB, he could log into the account and change the info. Make sure to input the right info, if not, then you'd have to call or email em.

    BD no matter where he bought them CB or us as long as it is through Mobihand they will be in this account page. if you log into your mobiand account page through our store it will show all the apps you have purchased no matter where . It is a great feature MobiHand offers

    No you can use Handigo and few others. In fact handigo has a mobile store (similar to bb app world)

    Before I send this defective phone back to verizon can I do a factory reset with Swiss Army knife? Will this take off my third party apps?

    Absolutely...BBSwiss Army Knife will wipe that device clean. I would do a wipe instead of a factory reset. This will erase Os and any 3rd party apps and leave the device with 507 error. If you do the security wipe application that on your device and select erase 3rd party apps this will take care of your original question as well.
    Options>>Security Options>>General Settings>>Menu(Blackberry)button>>select Wipe Handheld>>then follow the prompts.

    I have read in other forums that once the unit is received back into a refurb facility that one of the first directives is to wipe the device anyway. I will call my guy at VZW.

    Just got of the phone with VZW...All they care about is receiving the bad device. Just to reiterate what I stated earlier...One of the first actions that is performed is to wipe the device anyhow. You don't need to install an OS back onto the device...

    Good Luck
