Default old to new help for my sister

Please Login to Remove!

I joined this forum with the express purpose of assisting my invalid sister. Prior to being crippled with a major stroke 2 years ago she made extensive use of her BlackBerry. She now has a new one and many ‘functions’ she previously used may not have been carried over to her new BlackBerry, although I believe her contacts were.

I do not own (and have never owned) a BlackBerry, and so I am not confident that I am asking the right questions to get the answers I need. We live ~2660 km apart (straight line). I am visiting her this weekend, and I will have only one opportunity to assist her in giving her new phone the ‘look and feel’ of her old. She still has both phones. I believe she has only 1 SIM card, but I hope that we can use that to enable the old phone to get info from it for transfer to her new.

Her old BlackBerry - BlackBerry RIM 9360BLKR GSM
Her new BlackBerry - Blackberry 9900BLK

please and thank you

the version available @ downloads.com is 7.1. you identified 6.0; can i assume the functionality is the same?

also is my approach ok? - use the SIM card on the old BlackBerry to enable it; backup to download manager; switch SIM card to new BlackBerry; upload. especially concerned about the use of the SIM card on both PDAs. it seems logical to me, but logic isn't always the way.

Yes, you may assume the functionality is the same. Yes, back up your old device and connect it and perform a device switch.
