Default 2 BB's on One PC

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all question:
My wife is ready to upgrade to a BB, the dilema I have is will we be able to run both BB's from 1 pc. We will NOT be sharing any software like Outlook & others. I simply want to only back up each BB and use the pc interfaces. Will I be able to do this?

**I did search fo an answer but most I read addressed the Outlook issue not having 2 BB's on one pc for back up and pc interface.

I have plugged a bunch of Blackberrys other than my own into my (work) PC for Backup and install (via App Loader) without a problem - including OS upgrades. Just be sure to click NO when asked if you want to switch the PIN.

For any syncing, obviously, you'd have to have different profiles for both you and your wife.

I would think having two different profiles may help. Perhaps having two different profiles in outlook as well may fix it.

User her profile on outlook, use her profile on Desktop Mang and sync it. Or If you have XP, wouldn't it be possible to have her log onto her XP account and it sync all of her stuff and yours on yours? I am not sure about this one, but I think it should work...

The Windows XP idea should work. That way the profiles are separate and eliminates any confusion as to whose BB is being synched. I wish I had thought of this.
