The ideal manner would be to use the Switch Device Wizard, if all your contacts were in the BB Address Book.

Or sync your old BB to MS Outlook or an ASCII text file and the resync to load the new BB.

At least the Backup Restore function will work also.
Hey JS! Hope all is well with you. What are the differences between switch device and backup/Restore? I am just curious of the advantages as I have used the backup/restore on a replacement device and if I need to do it again I should probably use switch device.
