Default BBM Contacts - New BB

Please Login to Remove!

I am picking up the VZ Tour when it comes out. My question lies within the realm of BBM. What will happen when I do "switch to new device". Will my BBM contacts already move over to my new BB? Will my BBM contacts be automatically updated with my new PIN? OR do i have to notify them all of the new BB? I am sorry if this is a repost or misposted...I did a search and could not find this answer.

Thanks all!

If you use the switch device wizard or restore and old backup the BBM contacts will be carried over, your friends maybe notified to re-accept due to the Pin change.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
