    I've looked around and haven't found what I'm looking for so here is my question.

    Is there, anywhere, step-by-step instructions on how switch blackberry devices? For instance, does the new phone have to be activated? Trying to save some phone time with tech support when new vzw 9650 arrives tomorrow.

    TIA.

    No activation is required. Switch on both old and bew BlackBerrys.

    Install Desktop Manager on your PC. You can find this on the CD that came with the new device.

    Plug in first one and then the other to the USB cable with DM running. This insures the good connection of both phones to DM.

    Plug in the OLD phone and sel;ect Device Transfer Wizard. Follow the on-screen prompts changing the phones over when prompted to do so.

    That's it.

    Can I swap out the micro sd cards before I do the device transfer?
