Wipe PlayBook, re-register with another ID, install bought app?

Hi,

 

I want to make calls from my z10 to my playbook. I used one blackberry ID to register them both. Unfortunately this makes it impossible to make calls from the Z10 to the PlayBook. Therefore I need to wipe on of these.

 

My question is:

If I wipe my PlayBook and register ist with another ID will I be able to reinstall all the apps without buying them again?

 

Thank

lrrm

No. A new BlackBerryID will not give you access to previously purchased apps.

 

If the Z10 is brand new and you have not purchased any (or as many) apps on the Z10, you might consider wipign the Z10 and logging in with a new BBID on the Z10.
