    just to be sure, keep the storm while you transfer to the tour. Then sell the tour

    Keep this in mind:

    If you back up any 3rd party apps that are Storm specific only, it may try and import those onto your Tour. That may cause problems down the line.

    Your best option is to wait till you get the Tour, and then use DM's "Switch Device" method to transfer your data. I wouldn't transfer 3rd party apps, but rather re-download the ones that definitely have a Tour-friendly version.

    That's what I did, and I didn't have any problems in the process. Plus, when you do it this way it transfers every little option on your Storm, including the type of clock you set as default, sound profiles, and alert sounds.

    if it's possible, get someone to spot you the money. you can give them like $10 interest or something. But that is the safest and smartest way to transfer.

    Also, if you are using DM 4.7 with your Storm, there have been reports that 4.7 doesn't work well with the Tour, especially for making backups.

    DM 4.6 and 5.0 seem to be ok.

    Oh I'm using 5.0 thank you for the heads up...I can't wait till monday to get rid of this storm and start a new life with the Tour I've heard nothing but great things about it! I just hope everything goes smooth with my contacts because I've pretty much got all my videos and pictures backed up to my memory card.
