    I will be upgrading my 9630 Tour to the new Bold 9900 in the near future.

    I have read a lot of columns regarding the 9900 but none of these has identified what version of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager will be used for backup purposes.

    Anyone know??

    when you plug your phone into a USB there is a launcher app installed on the internal memory that will lead you online to download DM 6.1, the current version...

    Thanks again.

    I went to local Telus Mobility store this past Friday and was told they will have 9900 either tomorrow (Monday Aug. 15) or Tuesday - tend to believe tomorrow because the 15th is date everybody has been saying.

    You noted that when I plug in my phone (hopefully the 9900) the launcher will lead me to on-line download of DM6.1 - before I do this, do I need to uninstall DM5.0.1.14 which is presently installed?

    Will I have to use the Device Switch Wizard to transfer data from my Tour to the new Bold?

    I'm a bit leary installing DM6 as I attempted to install it a few months ago which ended up screwing up something whereby I could not access two of my SQL databases. At one stage in the installation of DM6 on my Win7 laptop, it said installation could not find Microsoft Visual C++2005 (or was it 2008) Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (which was installed) and aborted the installation. Will DM6 installation once again look for MS Visual C++?? Please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    Telus already released them...or did Ottawa just run out of stock?
    I know the GTA's had them since the 11th or 12th..


    Also, the latest Desktop manager will work just fine.
    Make sure after the device switch, ur old phone is off.
    if you get stuck at "please wait" forever in appworld, reload the OS,
    sign in with your BB ID and when you go into appworld say "yes" to the request to switch pins.

    hope this helps and u enjoy ur phone!
