Default Swapping SIM to non BB

Please Login to Remove!

8800 on BES

I'm going on a cruise, and don't want to even think about reading email. So I'm taking my bb sim card and moving it into a regular motorola phone.

My question is : What happens a week later when I put the sim back into the BB?

Will hundreds of emails come to the BB? Will the calendar requests, which get automatically accepted, appear on the phone magically?

What about the gmail that gets forwarded to the phone?

I kind of think everything will should just OTA synch and there won't be any problems, but ......

Is the best thing to do if all of the stuff comes to the phone just do a DELETE on Handheld, and then go back to outlook and gmail and read the originals?

Advise please

It basically picks up where it left off.

Will hundreds of emails come to the BB?
Yes. They will be pending on your BES to be delivered once you resume communication with it.

Will the calendar requests, which get automatically accepted, appear on the phone magically?

Yes.

What about the gmail that gets forwarded to the phone?
Same as your BES mail. It will flood into the device once you have a data signal again.

That should be the case.

Is the best thing to do if all of the stuff comes to the phone just do a DELETE on Handheld, and then go back to outlook and gmail and read the originals?
Only you can answer this one. That would be one way to handle it, and probably what I would do in this situation.

Advise please
Enjoy the cruise, eat lots of food.
Don't drink too much as to cause you to not remember your trip.
Use lots of sunscreen.

You're exceptionally skilled, smart, and no doubt handsome, for a Red Sox fan.

Thanks for your help, a former Bronx kid

Your BB will be fine. Your head might explode, but your BB will be fine.
