Moving Viira To Your New BlackBerry

The full version of Viira allows the easy move of all of your Viira data from one BlackBerry to another - for example, if you are upgrading to a new BlackBerry. This can be done very quickly with the help of the Desktop Manager software, and you will be getting things done on the go with your new device in no time at all!

To migrate your Viira data, all you need to do is back up Viira from the old BlackBerry and restore it to the new one.

We talked in a previous post how the full version of Viira offers the ability to save all your data off the device and to your computer - and get a peace of mind that your trusted GTD system is easily recoverable in case something happens with your BlackBerry. It is exactly this functionality that makes the Viira data migration to another device possible.

First, you will need to create a backup of your Viira data that is on the BlackBerry from which you want to move Viira - let’s call it the old device. The quickest and easiest way to do this is to backup the entire device in one quick step by selecting Backup Device in the Desktop Manager.

Our backup walkthrough contains more detailed instructions on how to create a backup for those not familiar with the process. We have also included some useful tips on what to do if your device happens to need some coercing in order to complete the backup process trouble-free, so make sure to read those as well.

Once you have completed the backup, disconnet your old BlackBerry and plugin in the new one to your computer (via USB). In the Backup and Restore area of the Desktop Manager, select Advanced and open the backup file that you created moments ago.

Using the arrows, move the Viira data and your Calendar entries from the backup file to the connected BlackBerry. It is important to bring the Calendar appointments and events from the old BlackBerry as well because Viira’s database keeps Appointments in sync with events in your Calendar. If Viira does not find those in your BlackBerry’s calendar it will assume that they have been deleted - and you don’t want that to happen!

Once this is complete, you are good to go and get things done on the go with Viira on your shiny new BlackBerry!
