    I did a search on this, but didn't get quite what I was looking for, so I was hoping the good ol' people of CB (esp. Torch users) can help:

    I have a Curve right now, and soon getting a Torch (whenever Rogers feels like it's a convenient time for them to release it).

    I've heard a lot of people saying the best thing to do when switching devices is NOT to use the device wizard and just bring over contacts & pictures manually. (Is it because going to the Torch from another device or because going from OS5->6 makes the Torch sluggish?)

    I don't have a problem with that as I use Lookout Mobile and it's pretty easy to restore contacts & pics.

    My other problem is that I use BES - does this change the fact at all? or should I still not use the switch wizard and just get the IT guy to resetup BES?

    Thanks for the help.

    problem with switch wizard was it carried some stuff over from my bold 9000 os 5.0 and made my phone run crappy. I did a wipe and just carried over contacts than reloaded everything else by hand and it started to work fine.

    I upgraded from a 8310 and am on BES. Took it with me to the AT&T store. The store employees switched everything to the Torch for me - all cards and data. I had a fully functioning Torch when I walked out the door and have had no problems with the device.

    The problem with the switching software is that sometimes the backup files can become corrupted and cause your phone to misbehave. Personally, I just load up Google Sync and be done with it. I personally don't change much of the default settings anyways.
