    im considering giving my 9700 a try again now that i have OS 6 on it and am trying to diagnose a trackpad issue. both phones are perfectly mirrored in terms of contacts, profiles/ringtones, settings, email accounts, BBM lists etc. my main question is this. if i want BBM to work correctly (PIN updates to existing contacts) do i have to use Device Switch Wizard everytime i want to swap devices or can i just swap in the SIM card and register on the network? i dont want to have my BBM contacts unable to reach me or have to re-add me everytime i swap. when i first got my Torch last week, i did the DSW from my 9700 and eveything worked correctly.

    There is remote backup build in now.

    Go to options in bbm and choose restore.

    I have never done it. Let me know if it works.

    im aware of that, but i dont think other people will be updated with the PIN change unless switch wizard is used.

    im sure someone here swaps devices sometimes and knows if the PIN updates for BBM work without device switch wizard.

    Both of my devices are essentially mirrored. Whenever I switch from one to
    the other the network automatically registers the device. Because I have all my
    contacts and BBM contacts on both phones there is nothing I need to do beyond
    that.

    No re-adding, no informing anyone. Nothing. Works very well.

    exactly the answer i was looking for. i was just worried about the PIN updates not reflecting on other peoples devices. that pretty much confirms what i was hoping for. thanks buddy!!

    Mine always appear to restore my contact list but as soon as I start a convo it asks me to re-add that person (and vice versa on their end)

    Exactly the problem I've experienced too.
