Default Swapping to a new 8830 - data? settings? saved preferences?

Please Login to Remove!

I am going to swap out my 8830 for another new one. (this one has a space bar key that often won't work)
here's the question:
should i get the new one and spend the half hour putting my new settings in like ring preferences, options, etc.
should i use the DM utility called change device? has anyone ever used the DM utility? any pros or cons to it?

The Switch Device Wizard works great. If you've already set up an email account on the device then you will need to change the PIN and IMEI on the BIS website, as well.
