    I just thought I would give an update to my question on page 1 of this thread. now that I have my Tour I have been switching back and forth to my Curve, AND i do it completely mobile which is important to me because I do not have a land line and my BB is my Computer Modem.

    here is my process:

    turn OFF the device that is active.
    turn on the device you want to activate (or make sure your network connection is on)
    once i have 1xev I call *228 opt 3
    wait for the device to be activated(the phone will beep to confirm).
    I have to wait a couple minutes to aquire a data connection, but once i go from 1xev to 1XEV I go to Advance Options>Host Routing Table>Register.
    once I get my confirmation that my device has been registered I then go to E-Mail set up from my device.
    Log into my BIS account>change Device - you should see the PIN for the device you have activated.

    that's it! all in all it might take about 10 minutes. I have switched 3 times now form the Curve to the Tour.

    last night I took the Curve apart, cleaned the trackball, cleaned the dust between the screen and lens. I decided that I will keep up to date on software updates and apps updated on the Curve as it will be a great "beater" device (or take fishing device, or take camping device, etc). my Tour feels too much like a weekend driving sports car LOL

    I'm trying to switch from a tour on my mom's line --> her actual phone (the chocolate) and take the 8830 off my line and add the tour. It's not working - I'm getting prettyyy angry.

    I'm posting here as not to start a new thread. I am not given option 3 when I dial *228, I've been wanting to use this method to switch between my Storm and Pearl but have had no luck. Do you guys and gals have any insight? Thanks in advance!

    Wonder if it is based on location? Is it prompting you for 3 options? When I dial *228 I am prompted for two options, when I hit 3 it tells me it is an invalid entry... It is kind of starting to **** me off.

    The hardest part about switching blackberries is moving your BIS to your new pin. Not very hard for most, but every once in awhile, somebody will have a bis account-name they can't remember or something like that.

    Yeah the PIN switch is no sweat, I just need *228 to give me the third option which it isn't and I'd like to know why.

    Actually it is option #1 now, then you will be prompted to enter your phone number, then your account password and it will all take less than 2 minutes total to activate. Turn off the old phone first and call *228 with the new phone.

    How's that for bumping a 2-yr old thread?
