Default Questions... 7290 to 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Well, I finally got it! I haven't used it yet but I will soon!

I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly.

If I backup everything on my 7290, install the new software on my PC for the 8100, and than restore everything, I should have all my address and phone numbers on the 8100? Right? Keep in mind, I am only using Blackberry software. I am not using Outlook or anything like that.

Or should I copy all my information on my 7290 just in case?

Install the BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.2 and use the Switch Device Wizard. Everything should transfer over to the new device.

I tried to use the Switch Device Wizard to transfer from my 7290 and all of my contacts and calendar events transfered but I lost my internet browser and I also had an icon for BES activation (I'm on BIS). Did I do something wrong? I'm trying to wait for PocketMac update but I figured I would give it a try. I just wiped the 8100 clean and started over I didn't have anything on it yet anyway.
