Default BIS and a second BlackBerry

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm thinking of buying a second BlackBerry off eBay. It is brand new and is sim-lock free so hopefully there should be no problems there.

However.... can anyone tell me if I will be able to relatively easily change over my BIS account between the two BlackBerrys (I plan to swap between the two). I think I have seen in my BIS account an option where you simply change the PIN to whichever BlackBerry you want your BIS account linked to. Is it really as simple as this?

Thanks in advance

I do this every weekend.
It really is that simple. Just change your PIN in BIS, enter you IMEI, register the device and you're done.
If you use DM 4.2 you can even keep both devices synched w/messages and everything!

Thanks BBChristopher. Could you just tell me though, what is DM 4.2 and how does it work?

Thanks

Sorry DM = Desktop Manager. Just clicked with me! How would I set it up to do what you said?

Thanks

Just install it and run the switch device wizard.
It's really easy, and it will walk you through.
