To change to former user name in new Playbook

I traded my first Playbook for another new one yesterday.  When I registared in the new Playbook, it wouldn't accept my former user name  and I had to type in my 2nd email address.  I wonder if there is a way to change back to my former user name in my new Playbook.  Also, I bought a few apps and music from the stores, which was from  my former user name.  I don't want to purchase the same apps for the new Playbook when I already have an account set up for apps and the store.    Thank you.

You're speaking of your BlackBerryID. I don't know why it wouldn't take it. Call the tech support phone number and are if they can change the Playbook devices for you.

Re: To change to former user name in new Playbook

I had to do the backup file and then do the security wipe in order to change my blackberry id.  It works and I will see if I can get the apps I bought.   :smileyhappy:
