    I've just got my Z10 two months back and I'm loving it (used a curve 9360 before). I bought it without a phone contract as I just couldn't wait another year for my contract to expire before hopping to bb10. However, in another 6 months, I'll be getting a Q10 when I do recontract. I would just like to ask if anyone out there switches between two bb10 devices on a regular basis as I can't bear to ditch my z10 completely. The touchscreen keyboard is the best in the market and it's brilliant for watching movies (for me at least). However, the Q10 would be my hardcore communications device, perfect f�r banging out emails and texts throughout the day. Has anyone done this? Do you find the transition between 2 BlackBerry 10 phones seamless (when you switch between them often)?

    Yes. I switch between my z10 and q10 a lot. In fact, yesterday, my kids wanted to watch the new movies I got from BlackBerry World so I connected my z to the TV, popped out the sim and put it in my q and everyone was happy. There was little delay with them starting the movie and getting me back up and running on my q. It's nice to have options

    I switch between the Q10, Z10 and Z30 almost daily. After the initial setup it's not too hard to keep them all running in unison for the most part.

    Can movies bought on one device be used on another if the bbid is the same? Or is the movie coded to the DEVICE specifically?

    Anyone know if purchased on a z10, can a movie be used on a Playbook with the same bbid?

    I don't have a PB so don't know if they'll transfer but they transfer fine between my z and q because I use the same BlackBerry id for both devices.

    Yeah, I often switch from my Q and Z. Like Adam said, it's easy once you have your devices all setup. All you have to do is pop in the sim card.

    Looks as if it is a different video store - the PB is Roxio. I did not see any sign of that or my ID when I searched for the one movie I purchased quite a while ago. But good to know that the bb10 devices probably share the movies via a common BBID.

    I switched between my Z10 and Q10 (while I had one) it seemed seamless enough.

    When AT&T finally pull their finger out and release the Z30, I'll be swapping between the Z10 and Z30, too...

    Why bother.. just go from 30 to the q...

    Sell the z10...

    Once you go z30 you won't wanna go back
    To anything else

    Yes! I use my Q10 as my main phone and every few days just have to turn on my Z10 and use it too. Love them both.

    On my PB which has the same BB ID I do not see any movie category options in BlackBerry World, so its impossible to download them.

    Yup. Different music store or purchasing process.

    Which begs the question - why?

    Yes. I have two Q10's (the second I acquired through the Keys To The City sweepstakes). My first is my primary device and home phone. The second is my emergency phone (prepaid) and media player for work. I don't worry about keeping the second one synced with my messages, as I can check emails via the Browser using free wi-fi.

    That's because you didn't backup/restore when you switched devices.

    I currently own a Z30 and love it! My only gripe is missing a few apps/games accessible on the Z10.

    If I were to purchase a Z10 to give me access to such apps (even though temporary) and to use as a testing device for Beta OS upgrades, can I still use the same BBID as on my Z30? If so, what problems could I run into? I'm not planning on using BBM on the Z10 and likely won't give it a SIM card either.

    Thanks,
