Just upgraded from an 8700c to an 8820 a couple of days ago. I fired up the Desktop Manager, and figured I would load up my calendars, tasks, addressbook, etc that I had backed up from my 8700.
Then, I saw the "Switch Device Wizard" and figured I would use it... BIG MISTAKE!!!! Fortunately, I got a clue late last night after downloading Stinsondog's 8800 model tips... p. 29 of his tips mentions some wireless issues related to using the "Switch Device Wizard".
I think we need a BIG sticky message at the top of this forum warning all 8800 users to not use the evil "Switch Device Wizard".
I should have known better... I'm pretty darn comfortable with Blackberrys, and even with this new 8820 I figured I could get things configured properly.
However, some of the things that were caused by "Switch Device Wizard" were fairly subtle and it took me a while to track down...
1. Immediately after using "SDW", I was unable to add or delete appointments from my calendar. Thought it was just a fluke, so I deleted the calender using "Backup and Restore" then reloaded my 8700c calendar and my appointments all looked okay, and I was able to add/delete [everything else that I imported using SDW looked fine].
2. OTA installs worked fine, EXCEPT for midpssh, which gave me a "907 Invalid COD" message. This threw me, because I installed several apps OTA, so I figured there must have been an incompatibility with midpssh.
3. After pairing my 8820 with my Parrot handsfree kit, they would not automatically connect upon coming into range.
4. The Desktop Manager Application Loader would not allow me to load any .alx files.
5. I was able to get WiFi configured and connected, but my WiFi icon would not light up, and I had a "yellow" light in the "Manage Connections" area.
After coming across p. 29 in Stinsondog's tips, item #5 above made it clear to me that I needed to wipe my device, and manually load a limited number of items from my 8700c. I did that, and now everything appears to be working flawlessly...
AVOID THE EVIL SWITCH DEVICE WIZARD!!!
