    Quick question for members who are using two BlackBerry devices simultaneously during the week and weekend, how do you/can I keep the information identical on both devices?

    What I would like to do is mirror the contents (apps and information) identical on my pp and my Z30 so I can swap devices for the weekend simply by moving my SIM.

    Do I just use BlackBerry Link and use the swap devices feature?

    Yes it's a BlackBerry. If you have something bad to say... speak to Easton!

    Yes you can but you will need 2 BBID's and then just switch out the sim, or you can switch bbm each time to new device.

    Thanks. Do you know which would be easier to do? Switching BBM to a new device or having 2 bbid's?

    I think having 2 bbid's would mean I have you buy each app I want twice no?

    Yes true, but if you set up each phone with the sim and BBID then when you switch devices, you can either switch bbm or set up a new .

    Sorry withdrawal, lost me there..

    What is the difference between 'switch bbm' and 'set up new'?

    Use the same BlackBerry ID.

    I just keep my contacts current on each phone and sign into BBM.. and that's it.

    All the apps can be downloaded from BlackBerry World. I switch between my two Passports and Z30 and it's all fine.

    Set up 1 email as the one you sync contact from.

    Flawless switching except bbm but that's fine.

    I use nexus 7 and passport since playbook screen is low res. Gave it to my bro

    How do you switch when they are different size sim cards?

    SIM card adapter. I put the nano sim into the adapter which is the size of a micro sim, and insert it into the Z30.

    Then I pop it out and just use the nano sim in my Passport when I feel like it.

    Sim Devil on Amazon. It's like $6 or something and comes with adapters of different sizes and the little tool you use to pop out sims on iPhones or iPads or the Classic too, I think. Be careful though, don't put the adapter in when the sim isn't in it... It will ruin the gold pins inside your phone.
