Re: Transferring from old model device to new model device

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

The PIN is a hardware-encoded value, unique to each BlackBerry SmartPhone. As such, it cannot be moved from one to another.

 

RIM does provide the Device Switch Wizard...you can read up on that here:

Good luck!
