    They have been using it for some time now and it would be better if they had their own bbid. Is it possible to change to their own bbid, while at the same time not losing the stuff they need to keep, like contacts, emails, messages etc.?

    Not really.

    They can technically keep the same ID as long as they (or you) don't use BBM.

    However, to actually change the ID on a blackberry device, you have to wipe it.

    And backing up won't work, because to restore it needs the same ID.

    Check the bbid settings, and it will let you edit them. They may let you just edit them now. But I believe you still have to wipe to set up with a new ID.

    You could probably try Device switch or a third party backup software but you should be able to backup with link then restore to a different BBID, you just need to know the original BBID if Link asks for it though.
