    I'm more of a newbie than you but I just switched from the Bold 9000 to the Torch last week and it was a piece of cake using DM. All my e-mails, contacts and calendar appointments transferred over without any issues. I followed the steps below that I found on this forum..........

    Device Switch Using BBDM
    1.) Back up the 9000
    2.) Disconnect the 9000 and plug in the 9800
    3.) Answer the question to just start using the new device
    4.) Click on Device>Restore
    5.) Put a Check Mark in Select Device Data and Settings
    6.) A new pane will open below where you can choose exactly the data you wish to import

    Some apps may still work, others you'll need to reinstall, it depends on what you have now.

    Hope this helps.

    A) Yes
    B) Some apps from the 9700 are not compatible.
    C) Use DM and click "Switch Device." This transfers EVERYTHING!!! Backing up another device then putting that file on a different device does not transfer everything.
    D) Stay out of dark alleys.

    Using Switch Device Wizard will transfer everything and all 3rd part apps that are compatible. If the right files are not found then it wont be installed, you will have to find the apps and install them manually.

    Install DM 6. Backup the old device. Transfer data and settings only. Refresh apps in BB App World and change PIN in ShopCB. Re-install OS 6 compatible apps.

    hey y'all, thanks for the help. got everything that is compatible moved over. was disappointed to see viigo does not work with the torch. didn't rim buy them? you would think it would be compatible. screen looks great, pinch to zoom in browser is great, and like the combo of touch screen and sliding keyboard. got it in white. it rocks.
