One BlackBerry ID for two BB Units

My Situation:

I have two BB IDs:

ID #1 for my BB 9900.

ID #2 for my BB PlayBook

Now I would like to rename the ID on the BB Playbook to ID #1 withount the necessity of a securitiy wipe.

Renaming the ID #2 on a PC does not allow the use the same email as in the ID #1.

Would be nice to receive an answer.

Re: One BlackBerry ID for two BB Units

The only way to use the same BBID is to wipe the device and log in with the new BBID. You can only use an email address with one BBID, as well. Sorry.

Re: One BlackBerry ID for two BB Units

Thank your for your clear advice.

To avoid the wipe (with loosing my apps) I prefer to introduce a second (new) email for ID #2

You can change the email associated with a BBID, however, that email can't be associated with another BBID already.
