    I'm switching devices, and might switch carriers.


    When I get a new BB (planning on getting the Bold 9930), do I have to get a new BB ID or can I just use/transfer my existing ID?

    Also, if I do switch, I would probably end up selling my BB. Would my BB ID stay on that device or can I carry it over to my new device?

    What BB ID are you talking about? If you're referring to your PIN, no, that stays with the phone. If you mean your blackberry email, only if you stay with the same carrier.

    The BBID is tied to the email address and user name you have it set for. If you change phones, it should transfer over. Something may come up about adding the new phone to the account.

    I'm going on memory here, but I recall something like that when I upgraded from my old Pearl 8100 to my current Torch. I had a BBID already set up through App World and switching over from one phone to the other was painless.
