Default Re: I need help with switching devices

Run a full backup. If your BlackBerry has built in memory for media, there is an option in the desktop software to backup the built in media storage. But you must check the box. The default is not checked. If you do that, all data, including everything in the additional onboard memory will be backed up.

Apps you've downloaded from appworld can be downloaded again on the new device, provided they are supported on the new device.

There are workarounds for backing up other third party apps you acquired from other sources. See blackberryfaq.com. Scroll down to the Applications and Operating System FAQ's section.

A final note. I don't know if things have changed, but when the 9900's first came out it was advisable to not use the switch device wizard when upgrading to the 7.0 devices. You are probably better off if you are getting a OS 7 device by not using the wizard anyway.
