Default Transfering data from one BB to another

Please Login to Remove!

If I use BB Desktop Manager to transfer all of my data and 3rd party aps from one BB to another will the second BB still have the data and aps that were already on it? I have 2 devices and I want to combine all the data and aps onto one device.

OP, it will overwrite the data on the second device.

Google IPD Merger. There is a product that will merge IPD files together to get the data combined.

Third party apps will need to be done manually.

I kind of figuret it would overwrite existing data. I mainly want to combine my address book and calendar. Is there another way to easily transfer data besides Desktop Manager?

I'll check into the IPD Merger you mentioned. Thanks.
