replacing Pearl tomorrow - can't use 'SWITCH DEVICE'
Please Login to Remove!
After a week of my Pearl losing charge in minutes, Tmo are sending me a replacement tomorrow. The problem is that I'm away from home, working, so the new phone is coming to my hotel. I won't be able to hand over the old one / receive the new one personally, so Reception will be doing this while I'm at work.
It means that I won't be able to use the Switch Device in Desktop Manager as this needs both devices (new and old) to be present.
The question is, can I simply use the Desktop Manager Restore function to do the same thing?
I will be retaining the memory card and the sim for the new device. I have backed everything up and I will change the IMEI and PIN in the TMo instantemail settings.Is there anything else I need to think about to make the switch as seamless as poss?
Thanks for any help received.

Yes you should be able to restore your backup to your new device. I did the same thing when I switched carriers. I had to clean up a few things that were carrier specific, like the Service books, but my contacts and calendar were restored with no problem
