    I've got an easy (hope it is) question. Im about to get my first BB, a BB 9300, from a friend of mine, which I plan to use untill I buy a newer device for in December. My question is: Will i have to re-request them to add me on BBM chat after I change my phone (and PIN) or does it auto-update? If so, do I have to back up my BB contacts before i change the phone and then transfer them?

    No. Use the Device Switch (in Desktop Manager) and the transition will be seamless. More than likely your contacts will not know you have a new device unless you tell them. That is how well the process works.

    Backing up your device is a good idea regardless.

    There is also the option of backing up your BBM contacts remotely to an email address, or locally to a micro SD card .
