    Before I do anything, I want to make sure that I have all the details down!

    I'm looking at switching my phone from a 9700 to a 9900. I'm on Rogers right now, and I'll stay with them. Can I buy a phone with no plan and use it on my account if I switch the SIM card? Also, what else do I need to keep in mind before I do it?

    One other thing - I'm also thinking of getting a 9810 for the wife's birthday. She has a 9700 right now - what do I need to do for that to work?

    Should be no problem. If you buy a Rogers phone, just pop in your SIM card. If you're buying a different carrier's phone, just need to unlock it.

    Back up your 9700 with Desktop Manager, then do a device switch. Should go pretty smoothly.

    Just buy the phones at full retail and pop in the sim cards. Once you do that, you can go to email setup and transfer all your email addresses and off you go.

    That's exactly what I did in my move from the 9700 to the 9900 and it was smooth sailing. Not ALL of the apps are currently working, btw, but most of my daily use is working just fine.
