I am planning on getting a new BB and I was wondering what will happen with the applications that I have bought for my Berry. Would I have to buy them again? So far I have bought Jivetalk, Empower pro, Guitar hero and 3 Themes.
BTW, my curve is new(I got it in February) but the track ball and the keypad don't turn on(light up) anymore, so I can't use it at night. It just stop working, that is why I need a new one unless there's a solution...

- If the "switch device wizard" doesn't work, your best bet is to e-mail each individual developer, explain that you've changed BlackBerry devices and thus need their application activated on your new device...
Also, when you e-mail each developer, be sure to include both your old AND new device PINs - developers can wirelessly enable and disable software on individual devices using their PIN.
I don't own a computer and when I recently changed devices, this is how I successfully transferred all of my purchased applications to my new device...

- for jivetalk, you can just open JT, press menu>about jivetalk.
the client ID is your reg. code.
I hope you bought the 29.99 user license, not the 19.99 device license.
If it says user license under client ID, you can just enter it into JT on your new berry.
If it says DEVICE license, then you need to go to BeeJive :: JiveTalk mobile messenger - instant messaging to go and contact them, they will let you upgrade to the user license, for a fee.
For all the others, you can dl the trial software, and contact the developer, so they can get you a new registration code.
Some programs, like empowr, i believe, have the license key locked to the PIN.

For empower, you would just need to switch the license over. The email you received showing your purchase more than likely has your activation code. You may need to contact them to update your PIN for that key. I'm unsure of the process as I don't use Empower.05-04-08 12:25 AM

Just email them and more than likely they'll be happy to upgrade your account to the $29.99, and paying the $10 difference.
For me, I don't mind using Oz Messenger. Although it uses text, I have unlimited and it works for free.05-04-08 01:13 AM
- Question about "Switch Device"...when using this, do you have to connect your old BB, then use the "Switch Device" and then connect the new BB device? Or will it transfer everything from your computer? Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I DON'T want to lose anything when doing this. Thanks for the help.05-04-08 02:13 AM
