Multiple devices + 1 BBID - Playbook and Smartphone

Based on the answers provided in the thread below;

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-PlayBook-2-0-Insider/Multiple-devices-1-BBID/td-p/...

 

I do not understand the following statement;

  • App World supports one simultaneous BBOS device and one PlayBook, and only 5 switches each per year (a maximum of 15 unique device switches per product line per year)

I have a Playbook 64GB and Strom2 9550. My Storm 2 is on BIS and Playbook connects via WiFi or sometimes tethered through Storm 2. So, both my devices would be logged into my Blackberry ID. I would be using App world many times on both the devices, not simultaneously. Does every switch between Playbook and my Storm 2 switching counted as "unique device switching"? If that is called so, I would be reaching 15 switching in a day or two.

 

For some reason, at the time of my Playbook purchase, my Storm 2 was not on BIS, because of carrier problem. I switched to another carrier and now, just got my BIS running on my Storm 2. But I have not logged into the Storm 2's App world using my Blackberry ID yet.

 

Can some one give a clear definition of "unique device switch" ?

No. Those are the "simultaneous" use.

Changing your device from a Storm2 to a new Torch (i.e., a new handheld device PIN) would be a unique device switch.
