How do I change Registration on Playbook

I just bought a 2nd Playbook.  The 1st one (32gb) was set up for my wife, while I use the HP Tpad.  She needed a 64gb PB (lots of videos and music) so we got that on special last w/e.  The 32gb will revert to me, but I need to change its registration from her to me before I register the 64gb to her.  Then I will wipe the 32gb and re-register it as mine.  There is nothing on the 32gb that needs to be preserved before the change over.  I have not yet powered up the 64gb so it is still virgin.

 

How best to do it??

Article ID: KB26694 How to change the BlackBerry ID on a BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet or BlackBerry Smartphone using BlackBerry Device Software 7

 

BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet

In order to change the BlackBerry ID that has been activated to the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on initial setup, a security wipe will need to be performed. To accomplish this, complete the steps below.

NOTE: Before performing a security wipe of the BlackBerry tablet, be advised of the following:

  • A security wipe of the BlackBerry tablet will remove any downloaded applications and media (Including pictures/video taken on the BlackBerry tablet or transferred via a PC)
    • To transfer media and documents saved on a BlackBerry PlayBook to a PC before a security wipe, see KB26068.
  • Applications purchased through BlackBerry App World on the BlackBerry tablet will still be associated to the BlackBerry ID they were purchased from but will be removed from the BlackBerry tablet upon a security wipe.
    • These purchased applications can be reinstalled through BlackBerry App World at a later time. Under the Uninstalled tab, tap the Reinstall button next to the application to reload
  • Any configuration changes made to the BlackBerry tablet (Including Bluetooth pairing information, settings changes, etc.) will be reset to defaults after a security wipe is performed
  • Depending on the amount of data stored and the capacity of the BlackBerry tablet (16 GB/32 GB/64 GB), the security wipe may take longer than expected. Ensure that the BlackBerry tablet is plugged into the power outlet to prevent power loss during the security wipe
  • After a security wipe, Tetris® and Need For Speed™ Undercover will be removed from the BlackBerry tablet. To reinstall these applications, complete the following:

    1. Open BlackBerry App World on the BlackBerry tablet
    2. Tap into the Search field
    3. Type EA Tetris and tap Return on the keyboard (Type EA Undercover to locate Need For Speed Undercover)
    4. Tap the Tetris for PlayBook icon (Should indicate the price is FREE)
    5. Tap Download 

 To perform a security wipe of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, complete the following:

  1. Tap the gear icon in the upper right corner to open the Options menu
  2. Tap Security from the listing on the left
  3. Enter blackberry to confirm the security wipe, then tap Wipe Data
  4. The BlackBerry PlayBook will then reset
  5. Once the PlayBook restarts, the initial setup process will be presented. Complete these steps and enter the correct BlackBerry ID when prompted.

Re: How do I change Registration on Playbook

Many thanks, that was pretty much as I expected, except for maintaining power.

After the wipe, do I assume the PB is now in an "out of box - new" condition, requiring a re-initialization?

I also recall when setting up the PB initially, there was an on-line registration with RIM. How do I change that?

Re: How do I change Registration on Playbook

It will be pretty much as new out of the box. New BlackBerryID required, etc.
