Default Moving up to 8310

Please Login to Remove!

i have just got my free upgrade through the post. i currently have an 8100 pearl and just got the 8310 as my yearly free upgrade. my question is, how easy is it to transfer all my contacts, meetings, appointments, tasks etc over to the new pearl. just want to do a full transfer. please tell me this can be done and i do not have to manually put them in. i currently have about 300-400 contacts and countless meetings and dates in the pearl and the thought of manually doing it will put me off switching phones. any help is much appreciated.

Install BlackBerry Desktop Manager (which comes with your BlackBerry on a CD) and then use the Switch Device wizard.
