I just purchased SplashShopper and need a registration code. Where do I find it?
When you purchase the software online, an order confirmation email is immediately sent to you (the email you gave in the purchase form) containing your registration code. The registration code will begin with the letters SSBB. Enter it exactly as it appears, and the trial software will be converted into a registered version.

I installed SplashShopper on a new handheld/desktop and it's asking me for my registration code. Where can I find it?
If you installed SplashShopper on a new handheld or desktop, you can find your existing registration code on the old device as follows:

Desktop
Launch SplashShopper Desktop, then select About SplashShopper Desktop from the Help Menu. Your registration code will be displayed in the dialog. It will start with "SSBB"

Handheld
Launch SplashShopper on the handheld, then select About SplashShopper from the menu. Your registration code will be displayed in the dialog. It will start with "SSBB"

If the above doesn't work, contact us and we'll respond with your registration code.

SplashShopper won't accept my registration code. Why not?
Make sure you are entering the correct registration code, and not your order number. The registration code should begin with the letters SSBB or SWBB. You may want to try entering the code without the dashes. Also, make sure there are no spaces before, after, or within the code. Also, make sure you are not confusing your registration code with your password. The registration code only needs to be entered once. The password is a word you define and must be entered each time you launch SplashShopper.

How much do upgrades cost?
The crossgrade to SplashShopper for BlackBerry costs $9.95. If you are a current owner of a previous version of SplashShopper, you can use the SplashShopper Upgrade Form.

Product Upgrades
Updates within a version (e.g., 2.0 to 2.1) are free to all registered users. Major upgrades (e.g., 2.x to 3.x) are available at a substantial discount to registered users. If you purchase within 30-days of a major upgrade you will receive the upgrade for free.

Can I use SplashShopper on multiple handhelds and/or desktops?
You may use SplashShopper on multiple computers/handhelds. The registration code is not tied to a specific device. The license is per user, so you may install it on all of the computers/handhelds that you use.

How do I transfer my SplashShopper data from my Palm OS version?

1. Launch SplashShopper Desktop for Palm OS.
2. Select File > Export > SplashShopper vSH and save the records. You must do this for each list. Quit when you are finished.
3. Launch SplashShopper Desktop for BlackBerry.
4. Select File > Import > SplashShopper vSH and select the file you exported in step 2.

How do I set up SplashShopper sync?
Synchronization is performed from within the SplashShopper desktop, unlike SplashID and SplashPhoto for BlackBerry. There is a Sync button in the menu bar to perform a manual sync whenever needed.

How do I make SplashShopper sync automatically when I connect my BlackBerry?
Currently, you must manually perform a sync by clicking the Sync button in the menu bar of the SplashShopper desktop. There is no automatic sync.

I amgetting an Application Loader error: The following modules could not be loaded because their digital signatures were invalid: SplashShopper.cod
This is most likely the result of a security setting on your BlackBerry Enterprise Server preferences. Please contact your IT department about this issue. It is described in this BlackBerry FAQ:

When I try to install the ALX file, I get a message saying "No additional applications were found." What do i do?
There are 3 possible causes of this problem:

1. SplashShopper is already installed, and you need to delete it. To do this, select SplashShopper from the list of applications in the Application Loader, then click the Delete button. Then click Next. Now you should be able to add the ALX file on the next time around.

2. You need to update your BlackBerry Desktop Manager software:
