    This is a totally newb question...but at least this is the right place, huh?

    I am getting another 8310 shortly as a sort of gift, and will be swapping back and forth between the two (Ti & Crimson)...and I want to have all the same apps and data on both phones. How do I do a total move from my Ti model (current) to the Crimson phone that I'll be getting...with all the apps on my Ti phone being active on my Crimson?

    Is there a way?

    I should know this, but I just don't. Thanks!!

    1. On your PC, choose Start --> Programs --> BlackBerry --> Desktop Manager.
    This takes you to the Desktop Manager screen, where you can find Switch Device Wizard.
    2. From the Desktop Manager screen, double-click the Switch Device Wizard icon.
    The Switch Device Wizard screen appears, displaying an option for you to choose whether to switch from BlackBerry to BlackBerry or from non-BlackBerry to BlackBerry. In this case, you're interested in BlackBerry to BlackBerry.
    3. Click the image next to Switch BlackBerry devices.
    A screen appears, telling you to connect your current (old) BlackBerry to your PC.
    4. Connect your old BlackBerry to your PC with the USB cable, and then click Next.
    The next screen lets you verify that your old BlackBerry is connected properly. The Connection setting on this screen should display the PIN of your old BlackBerry.
    5. Click Next.
    6. Decide whether to include user data and third-party applications.
    If you want all the data, leave the screen untouched, because this will back up everything. Third-party applications are all the programs you installed (that is, the ones that didn't come with the device originally).
    7. Click Next.
    A status screen appears, showing the progress of the backup operation. When the backup is finished, the next screen instructs you to connect your new BlackBerry.
    8. Connect your new BlackBerry and then click Next.
    The next screen lets you verify that your new BlackBerry is connected properly. The Connection setting on this screen should display the PIN of your new BlackBerry.
    9. Click Next.
    This takes you to a screen that tells you what will be restored to the new device. Nothing has been done to your new device yet, and this is the last opportunity for you to cancel the operation.
    10. Click Finish.
    A progress screen appears, showing you the loading process.
    11. When the Success screen appears, click Close.
