    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.

    heres a link for a video that you can use in the future. use the device switch in DM like these guys suggested.

    I thought I'd throw this at you just in case

    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.
