Direct Device Switch between 8330 units via Bluetooth

Is there a way to move all device configuration settings, applications, etc. directly from one 8830 to another via Bluetooth ?

 

I have an 'old' 8830 with something broken (physically) in the USB connector, so I cannot connect it to my laptop & despite my best efforts, I can't seem to get the Desktop Manager to recognize it through Bluetooth (even though it does pair properly) so that I can use the Device Switch Wizard.

 

I have a the replacement 8830 & just want to 'clone' my first one onto it and return the old one.

 

Have got the two 8830s paired, but there is no clear equivalent to the Device Switch Wizard for a direct device to device connection.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers. Patio.

I don't believe you can. However, if you have the BBs paired to the PC, just sync to Outlook and resync back to the new device. That you can do.

JSanders - thanks very much. Was hoping I could avoid doing a manual re-load of all my applications, etc, but if that is the only way, will suck it up & do it.
