    I currently have a white 9780 and want to get a black one instead, but don't want to change housings.

    Is it possible to transfer text messages directly from one blackberry to another? I want to transfer about 1 and half month of convos via text messages across 2 blackberry's.

    Any help would be great!

    If you use BlackBerry Desktop manager, you can transfer it with the device switch wizard or just restore from a backup.

    Just backup the messages from your current 9780 with DM, then restore to your new one when you get it and delete those you don't need.

    actually there is a much much easier way to do this
    download blackberry protect from the app world
    back up your old phone
    and then on the new phone download the app again from app world
    type in the same account you set up on the old on and
    then it will ask you if you want to transfer say yes it will move
    all text and and everything for you

    Take it from someone who's tried it...BlackBerry Protect doesn't always work for this. Desktop Manager is the way to go. I think there was even a blog post on crackberry.com about this.
