Re: Blackberry Email

Is your device setup with a BIS (personal email) or BES (corporate email)? If you want to transfer the email messages themselves you can you the Backup and Restore feature in Desktop Manager to do so. Just download BlackBerry Desktop Manager from here. Once installed just follow these steps to transfer: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB13428

Re: Blackberry Email

Two ways,


You need to log into your carriers BIS site and update the PIN and IMEI number to the new device.


This can be access from the 'EMAIL SETTINGS' icon on ur device, or find your carrier from this list




(IF you are using a BES service, contact your company IT department.)



If your issue is resolved, put a checkmark in the green box that contains the resolution.
If it was just/or also really helpful - Give it a Kudos.. Go on Mate.. Help the rest of the clueless blackberry user world find their answer too..

Re: Blackberry Email

I have changed my personal email no problem but I meant the actual blackberry account email.

Re: Blackberry Email

Just login to BIS account through Email Settings icon in your new device you'll get a prompt about change of new device. If you accept the changes all the account that are configured in your old device will be switched to your new one.
