Most painless way to move to new identical device?
My 8330 is getting old (headphone jack is getting noisy, phone speaker is distorted (admittedly it's been dropped). New 8330s are so cheap ($40 on Amazon) that I decided to just buy another one because I don't feel like shopping, or worrying about how to configure a newer device, or whether my apps port to a newer O/S (are they available, do I have to pay again).
So when the new one comes, I'd ideally like to push a button, move everything over, generate and enter new license codes for my paid apps, and go on my way.
I know that the Blackberry manager has a way to do this, but if I remember correctly (Had to do this a couple of years ago when I had a warranty replacement), it doesn't do it very well. Lots of app config info gets lost, etc.
I'm wondering if anyone has written a really good "cloning" (in the legal sense of the word) app that would replicate the setup of blackberry 8330 A onto blackberry 8330B (license codes excepted).
