    Hi! I have a Bold 9000 that I have been using for years without problem. Few months ago it went dead (4 red flashes for those interested). I have regular backups but my BB will not start.
    From a friend I got another BOld 9000 which apparently is locked to another network, so I it will not work with my SIM.
    HERE IS THE QUESTION:
    Should these old BB-s start without a SIM (so far I could not get them work)? Can I restore my data to this other BB? What would you suggest as the best approach to get to my data? At the moment I do not plan to buy a new BB, so this is not an option.
    Thanks!

    Well, they should turn on without a sim and you can use wifi.

    Best way is to use Desktop Manager to get your old backup on to the new phone...should work.
