BlackBerry BOLD activation through Desktop Manager

HI all!


My company changed the Blackberries 8310 to Bold. I was trying to do the activation through Desktop manager but it didn't work, just by OTA. This model supports migration of some older device by Desktop manager?

Re: BlackBerry BOLD activation through Desktop Manager

On the new Blackberry Desktop Manager ( version 4.6 , is in the package with your new device ), you can use Switch devices, and transfer all the information between the two devices.

To activate the new device, i suppose when you insert the sim to the new device, received a registration text, if not, call your Carrier and ask for activation.

If you received the registration text, and goes to your Carrier's web page, log on on your account, and you have the chance to activate the new device.

If I help you with any inquire, thank you for click kudos in my post.
