switching phones

Is there a way to swap info from one blackberry to another without the USB cable for both phones??  I have the cable for my world edition but I am still waiting for my Storm USB cable.  I would like to start using the new phone but don't want to swap over all the settings and info by hand.  Thanks

Re: switching phones

No, you must have the MicroUSB cable for the Storm connected to the PC to use the Switch Device Wiz in Desktop Manager. I bought one at the local Verizon store (at a ridiculously high price).

Re: switching phones

The USB cable to connect the phone to the PC came included with my phone.  Is this not the same cable you guys are talking about?

Re: switching phones

Yep, that is data cable of which we speak.

 

It was not included in mine. Of course I found a note in mine "packed by Snideley Whiplash".
