    Ok so my fianc is on the 9930 and I'm on 9850. She wants my phone now. What's the best way to swap phones?

    Switch sim cards, log out of your BlackBerry ID's on each phone, and log back in on the new phones then setup your info.

    Sim not required for Verizon users, applicable only if globe-trotting.

    You may need to call Verizon and simply have them switch the phones as both are activated and in use.

    However, if you'd prefer to attempt it yourself, read on. Log out of BlackBerry ID as SC457 said, then log into My Verizon, look halfway down the page once you've gotten your account open to where it says "I want to...", under Phone choose "Activate or Switch Devices. You may run into a problem there since the phone being switched/swapped to is already active, and vice versa.

    Once that's taken care of, go to Options -> Setup -> Switch Devices on each device. Run the wizard, save to memory card, switch devices and cards, and repeat to restore on the newly swapped devices.

    And on the device it self, dial ##000000 to change the phone number.

    The device switch on Verizon's site renders this unnecessary. The only time I have ever dialed that was to reset my 9550 by entering the password on that screen as a full screen touch device cannot be reset with the Three Finger Salute.
