Default Switching devices using Desktop Manager

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8800 packed with third party apps and also BES IT Policy. If I used the Desktop Manager option of Switching Devices from my 8800 to 8300, I know that it will transfer my third party apps over but will it also transfer the BES IT policy over? I don't want the BES IT Policy on until I have download all the 3rd party apps. My BES Admin will allow that and then I can do Enterprise Activation. Any ideas?

3rd party apps maybe moved but your BES will have to set up your new device on their network. Depending on the security set up by your BES, you may not even be able to use the Switch Device Wizard

To answer your question simply:
No the IT Policy will not be transferred over to the 8300. IT policies are for devices that are currently on a BES and can only be pushed from one. Since the 8300 isnt activated yet, you wont have any problems. All your 3rd party apps will transfer over and all you'll have to do is EA.

Note: There is a function within Switch Device Wizard that will detect that the 8300 is not currently Enterprise Activated and will ask if you would like to activate it. Just decline this and your golden

Bru433 - Thanks for the info. It was helpful. Will be activating it next week when I set things up with my BES Admin.

An additional question, some 3rd party apps used the PIN # to activate registration. Will these still work on the new unit?

In most cases, third party apps using a PIN for registration will not work on the new BB. You will very likely need to renew your subscription with those applications. An example would be BBAlerts and JiveTalk (device license).
