More Info
        Blackberry users who want to change a new handheld are often
faced with the question on how to transfer all data to the new handheld.
This is because, Blackberry smartphones are very different from the usual
smart phone, every Blackberry phone has its own unique number known as
Blackberry PIN. This PIN is used for Blackberry Messenger ID.The process
of switching Blackberry smartphones is actually quite straight forward
and simple and anyone should be able to do it with the instructions
below.If you have bought your new Blackberry device from a shop that
provides the transfer of data service, then you have nothing to worry
about as they will take care of it in less than 30 minutes.Your PIN will
change but your contacts will be automatically notified by Research in
Motion (RIM) with your new PIN being updated to their device without them
even realizing you have switched to a new Blackberry device!If you wish
to carry out your own transfer, here's what you need to do:
1. Backup your Blackberry with the Blackberry Desktop ManagerBackup all
your data with the desktop manager. If you have not previously install
and use the desktop manager, you can find the software in the CD provided
in the box. Find the CD and follow instructions to install the desktop
manager to your PC/Mac. Or you may simply download it from blackberry
websiteLaunch your installed desktop manager, plug in your Blackberry
with the usb cable provided to your desktop. Click the backup function
and follow instructions. The process should back up all your Blackberry
applications, contacts and calenders.
2. Restore Your Blackberry DeviceNow that you have performed your backup,
unplug your device and plug in your NEW Blackberry device to your desktop
and select menu Restore. All your data will be restored / transfered back
to your new Blackberry device including contacts, phone book, calender
and all your Blackberry Messenger (BBM) contacts.After you have restored
your device, launch your blackberry messenger in your new device and you
will find that your BBM contacts lists will appear in your new BBM.Even
with your new PIN. RIM will automatically link connect and update all
your BBM contacts with your new PIN in minutes. including recovering of
your blackberry groups. The process is automatic, you do not need to
reinvite your friends and your friends will not even know you have
switched to a new device (unless you tell them)To make sure the process
went on smoothly without errors, you will want to reconnect your email
accounts before opening the Blackberry Messenger. This is because if your
Blackberry messenger contacts cannot be restored for whatever reason, you
can then use the restore remotely feature using your email addresses that
were registered. Remember to restore remotely, RIM needs to send an email
to your Blackberry device to confirm ownership, if your emails are not
set then you will not be able to receive this email.To connect your
email, go to email settings in your Blackberry settings folder and make
sure all your emails are set correctly. You only need to log in to your
previous account from the email settings to make them work in your new
Blackberry.        <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
