Wirelessly posted (Curve 8310)

I know this is gonna sound dumb, but I need to know so let me just put it out there. My friend and I both have curve, but she has 8320 TMO titanium and I have 8310 ATT red... Can we trade phones just by swapping SIM cards? Will this work??

Also, if I want totally wipe my device before I hand it over, how do I do it? (Other than manually removing everything!)

You will both have to unlock your devices. Once the devices are unlocked, then what you want to do will work.

Check HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World&rsquo;s Cellular Repair Center for unlock codes.

To remove all data from your device, you would do the following:

Go to Options > Security Options > General Settings > Menu Key > Wipe Handheld.

You may want to Back-up your device first before wiping it clean . . . then Restore data back to the swapped device. . . .

BTW, you can also get unlock codes respectively from T-Mobile and AT&T for free, usually within 24 hours of request.

After you have done the swap, Restore your data. . . make sure each one logs-in to your respective BIS accounts, confirm device PIN and IMEI registration and Resend Service Books.

One of you will have to have your BIS account deleted. You can't transfer BIS to a BB that already has a BIS account associated with it.
