Transfer info from old to new blackberry

Hi All

 

Is there an easy way to transfer all my files and contacts across from my Blackberry Curve 8320 to my new Blackberry Curve 9300. Keep it simple for me.

 

Many thanks

If you install the Blackberry Desktop Manager (www.blackberry.com/desktop) you can use the device switch wizard to automate the transfer.

I have the Blackberry Desktop Manager on my computer. Where do I find the device switch wizard and how do I use it?

What I think you would have to do is plug in your device with blackberry desktop software, backup your device, plug the device you want to transfer your data over too.. then restore data and choose the backup file that was just created.

From memory...



  1. Connect your new BlackBerry device to your computer.
  2. Click Yes - Switch my BlackBerry services to this device.
  3. Click Yes - Transfer the data.
  4. Complete the instructions on the computer screen to switch your BlackBerry device.
