Transfering data

I was trying to transfer data (memo, tasks, calendar) from my BB Pearl 8120 to my Storm 9500. I opened the "Desktop Manager" and saved all the info I had on my Pearl. Then I swiched devices and clicked on "Swich Device Wizard". It was telling me that the data has been transfered but upon desconecting the Storm 9500 from the computer, nothing was on it. Did I miss something?

Also, I was just thinking about this .... would I be able to transfer data between the 2 BB (Pearl & Storm) via Bluetooth ???

 

Thanks

Re: Transfering data

OK, it worked. My Desktop Manager for the BB is not the same as I saw in the pic from the link you gave me, but it worked. I had both my BB`s connected (Pearl 8120 and Storm 9500) then I selected from a drop down window where to transfer the data (Pearl8120). Data got copied on the computer first then I selected from another dropdown window the current BB (Storm9500) After clicked "Next", the Storm was rebooted. Once back on, all the data I had on Pearl (Memos, Calendar, Tasks, Contact Info) has been transfered over to the Storm.   

 

Perfect !! ... and thanks
