    Doing a device switch from a Classic to the Q5. When I changed to Device Name on the Q5 to my old Device Name from the Classic, Blend does not recolonize the Classic's Device Name on the Q5.

    I was able to do a back-up using the Classic back files.

    I want to keep the old Device Name so I don't have to pay for the apps I already purchased.

    Is this possible?

    I did it switching from one Classic to another Classic.

    Anyone?

    Apps you purchased are connected to your BlackBerry ID. If you log in with the same ID you will have access to everything.
    Is that what you mean by 'device name'?
    Because the device name is just a superficial name that shows up when using blend or link.

    Thanks didn't know that.

    Under settings go to About

    I just changed the Device Name to what it came with.

    You can set that to anything you want. It's just to identify the device on the network (for example if you connect to bluetooth in your car or on blend it will usually show your device name if you have more than one)
    But the actual info is connected with your BlackBerry ID which you entered when you set up your phone (or if you loaded a backup it should already be there)
