Blackberry 8520 To 9300

I've switched from the Blackberry 8520 To 9300, is there a way I can backup my contacts from 8520 and transfer them to 9300?

 

Will it appear two profile BB on peoples BBM?

Please use plain text.

Re: Blackberry 8520 To 9300

Once I transfered the contacts from 8520 to 9300, will it appear on peoples BBM as two BB profile of my old and new Blackberry?

Re: Blackberry 8520 To 9300

I'll only need to transfer contacts to the new Blackberry so I follow Step 1?

If I did the transfer, no one would know that I've got a new pin?

Re: Blackberry 8520 To 9300

If you follow the entire process, your BBM contacts, and BBM settings will be transferred and you won't need to do anything. Your contacts won't need to know you have a new PIN, your contact will be updated in the BBM contact list with your new PIN.

 

Your thinking this through a lot more than is needed.

Re: Blackberry 8520 To 9300

I've transfered my contacts from my Blackberry 8520 to 9800, I'm using the same name and profile as my 8520 on my 9800, if someone searches my name on BBM, will it appear twice with my 8520 and 9800 pin or just the 9800 pin?

Re: Blackberry 8520 To 9300

When you performed the Switch Device Wizard, that process would have transferred your BBM profile, etc., as well, and pushed the new 9800 PIN to your BBM friends.

Re: Blackberry 8520 To 9300

When I transfer my profile to my new phone, and when I try to change my profile name, it changes but few hours later it changes it back
