Default Application transfer

Please Login to Remove!

If I get a new blackberry in the future, will I be able to transfer an application to it?

I was to buy an expensive medical reference application, I want to be able to keep it for a long time!

You can do this, assuming the manuf doesn't ask for a PIN/imei/ESN when registering/buying

I've always found it better to download a new version of the app I want on my new device and transfer the lincense for it when possible. Even if the old license was tied to the old device's IMEI/PIN, the developer will usually give you a new license key for the new device.

Contact the vendor.

I've moved apps through four different BBs over the years, and all the respectable apps (i.e., more expensive) moved over with a simple email explaining the situation. (I don't worry too much about the $2.99 stuff.)
