Re: help with app world



AppWorld records, including purchases, remain attached to the BB ID. Hence, you must use the same BB ID on the new device in order to transfer the apps to the new device. But, since you are already in a position where you've created a new BB ID, you must abandon that and shift this BB over to your old BB ID. To do so, refer:

  • KB26694 How to change the BlackBerry ID on a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or BlackBerry smartphone

The resolution is indeed drastic, so please be sure you have a good backup from which to restore after completing the WIPE. Hopefully, your new BB ID has no records you need to retain (e.g., new purchases) as there is no automated way to merge two BB ID accounts.


Good luck!
