Blackberry "Switch Device Wizard" is flawed

I think I have my Blackberry 8703e working again after it got all messed up from trying the "Switch Device Wizard" of the 4.2 Desktop Manager.

The wizard sucks all the information off of my old Blackberry fine...but it doesn't wisely figure out what should and shouldn't get pushed onto my new Blackberry.

I was hoping to save my option preferences...though they changed all the names of the included sound files, so it was kind of limited usefulness. Though losing all my bookmarks is kind of a pain.

It did figure out that the 3rdparty apps on my 7100t weren't compatible for the 8703e, and refused to put these on.

But, it blinding replaced other important things in settings...like my service books. Ignoring that my old device is T-Mobile and my new device is Sprint. So T-Mobile service books probably won't work on Sprint's network....

Basically, I resorted to invoking the security option to wipe my blackberry, and cross my fingers that Sprint will OTA put it all back right.

The only thing I can't remember...was there ever a PHONE application on the blackberry? There isn't one now...and it just seems strange. Now it does have the annoying default where pressing keys from home can dial calls. But, it is the first thing I turned off after the reset...and now I'm trying to figure out what key will get me back....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
