    New storm--How do I switch apps/info?

    I had to get a new storm. I want to add my backed up apps , themes and other stuff to the new one. Will it pick them up when I conect or do I need to change some things around in DM

    Hello fire....
    You may want to try Device Switch in the Desktop Manager. When you select this function, select "Switch Blackberry Devices"...You will need to take note of your new PIN#. In the right of the screen shot, you will be given options as to which pieces of data you want to transfer.

    If, you have your programs backed up then you should not have a problem.

    Will that backup work with a different PIN# for the .alx file Seanren? The new device has it's own PIN# and may not recognize the .alx file/folders associated with the older device.

    Yes it will MePascal the apps won't work if they are pin specific but for those that aren't pin specific they will work.

    Thanks smcoldbb....I wasn't sure if that would show fire how to transfer as well. I only thought it would show fire how to backup the 3rd party apps.

    Bryan, If you had pin specific apps, then would you recommend the Device Switch in the Desktop Manager?

    How about when I restore all my settings, then resend all the service books?
    Would that send my new PIN# and reset everything?

    go to this link... https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw

    login and click on "change device" under setting (left hand side)

    it then says:

    Change the device currently associated with your BlackBerry Internet Service account. Type the new device's PIN and ESN/MEID.

    and you put in the new pin and esn/meid and hit save.
