    Dear All,

    I will soon be upgrading my 8900 to a Bold 9700 and have a quick question.

    If I just plug my 9700 into the PC and run the desktop manager will it install all the data, contact and previous setting I had on my 8900?

    Or do I have to do something else?

    Thanks for any tips

    Not sure about the settings, but I know the data will transfer over.

    Use the switch devices wizard and it'll do EVERYTHING for you, including transferring any apps you bought. It is very simple..GL!

    That is what the Switch Device Wizard is for and it does it very well!

    It move me out of my Bold into the 9700 without flaw.

    Now that we are on the same topic, how about if I am transfering from a Storm 9530 to a new Bold 9700. Do I have to unistall the desktop manager and install the new one or is it the same easy process. Just curious bc two different carriers. Sorry to the OP for taking from your question.

    Didnt want to start a new thread for a similiar question...

    It should work fine. As long as you get Desktop manager 5.0. I had a Verizon 8130 and xferred to a tmobile 8900 without any issues whatsoever.

    I don't see device switch wizard anywhere in Desktop Manager, am I crazy? I just installed Desktop Manager v5.0.1. Based on the description in the Desktop Manager help menu, it sounds like I should be able to click on device switch wizard as soon as I connect my handheld and open Desktop Manager. But I don't see it anywhere. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    i have DM v.4.7 and want to transfer from my 8900 to 9700. I have the device with me now, but do i need to use DM 5.0 since the OS on the 9700 is 5.0 or can i still do it with DM 4.7??

    I'm about to switch from a curve 8310 to a curve 8900.

    What version of Desktop Manager should I install? My current phone OS is v4.5.0.110 Can I use DM v5 even though my phone is v4?

    Sorry if that's a stupid question!

    Thanks!!!
