Re: blackberry id

You must security wipe the device first, then login with the new BlackBerryID.

Re: blackberry id

No.

 

In the wipe options, do not wipe the media card (or remove it first).

Do a desktop backup first, and restore your data, personal settings after the wipe (but login to the new BBID first, then restore).

 

BBM will reload and restore. The new BBID will lose your old BBID contacts, since they are TIED to the old BBID.
