    Hey, everyone!

    I just decided to give my wife my iPhone and go back to her BlackBerry Classic. I backed up the device because I wanted to do a security wipe in order to change the BB ID from hers to mine. Now that I have the phone back up, am I save to use the restore functionality within BlackBerry Link and know my BlackBerry ID will remain, or will using the restore file change the BlackBerry ID back to hers?

    Thanks!

    Only a BlackBerry with same BBID that was backed up can be restored. Otherwise, I could hypothetically use my phone on a friend's BlackBerry Link to "restore" a backup my phone didn't even make.

    As you know, all the apps in the backup are linked to your wife BBID. I guess you won't be able to do a restore as the BBID won't match the one on the phone.

    By the way, why restoring ?
