I currently am using a 2GB TF card on my BB 9780 and wanting to upgrade to a 4GB TF card.

If I just transfer (using PC) evrything from the 2GB TF to a new 4GB TF, will the resulting transfer work flawlessly on my BB 9780?

I'd try it myself but I don't want to buy a 4GB TF just to find out later that that can't be done.

Any input is appreciated.

Thank you.

Use the BlackBerry Desktop software to do the backup. It'll take much longer, but you'll be assured it will work. Music and pictures are a non-issue, but apps may have trouble with the new card.

To be honest though, I'd recommend getting an 8GB instead of 4, they're only a few dollars more and you're less likely to run out of space again in the future. Plus, when you're done with the phone you'll be much more likely to find a use for an 8GB card than a 4.

Let us know how it goes.

Quite honestly I haven't even reached the 1GB mark on my TF card at the moment and I can get a 2GB TF for $5 after tax is the only reason I'm upgrading my memory.

I didn't know that the apps are stored in TF. I always thought the apps are in the internal memory.

So what you're saying is for me to do a full backup, change the TF and then do a full restore?

What's TF? Are you talking about microSD cards?

Yes. (I always thought TransFlash and microSD to be one and the same).

BlackBerry Apps are stored on the device ONLY.
If that's the case, then in theory I should be able to just copy all the folders from one TF to the next without using backup/restore function right?

I've done it before. There's no encryption to the device so there should be no issues copying to a new TF.

Also, while apps are stored to the device mem, app data can be stored on the removeable media
