    OK so I purchased my first PlayBook (16G) when they first came out and love it so much that I got one for my grirlfriend and two more for my kids as XMass presents (32G). I got them all setup with their own accounts / and Blackberry ID's.

    The fifth one, 64G is going to be for my own use as well, I couldnt resist getting a 2nd on sale at bestBuy for $299.

    The question, does anyone know if uou can use the same account/Blackberry ID on separate devices? I am thinking not but thought I'd check in here first before I set up the new device tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance

    I think you can.
    I read in the threads that it's been done.
    You just won't be able to video chat between these 2 PBs obviously.

    ...... So it sounds like i will be able to use the same Blackberri ID on two different devices and the only drawback would be not being able to use video chat between the two, I can live with that if it means I can download and use the apps I already purchased/have on the 16G ... not that I want to rip any developers off.

    Your understanding is correct. If you want to reset your ID for any of them it will require a security wipe to do it. Last tip is when you setup with the same ID, go to appworld, my world, uninstalled and you will see the list of apps you have installed on that bb account.

    Goodluck.

    ..... Not seeing the apps in myworld 'installed' may have thrown me off for a bit, but it makes sense that they would not show up until reinstalled on the new device.

    Thanks

    If you had installed apps on that account there is another tab called uninstalled, right beside the installed tab.

    what happens if someone sends him a video chat request and both PB's with the same BBID are up and running. will that trigger a 3 way chat (both PB's with the same user ID + the PB that initiated the chat) ?

    Interesting thought. That would be cool. I'd like to know if that's possible or true.

    If I'm not mistaken, you can have up to 5 devices with the same BBID.
