What happens if you change phones? Is there a code you place to merge the account and new phone while disabling the older phone?

Each application has a serial number that comes with it. Write that serial number down (you can access it from the application itself anytime) and keep it. If something happens and you can't access the app you will need that code to get help from Blizz.When switching phones you can use that code to unlink the authenticator on your old phone from your Battle.net account. **Make sure you unlink the authenticator before deleting the application from you phone! You need the serial number AND the current authenticator number being displayed to unlink it!**After that you'll need to download a new authenticator (and pay the 99 cents USD) onto your new phone and set it up the same way you set up the old one. This new app on the new phone will have a different serial than the app on your old phone, so it will have to be set up with Battle.net again. Don't forget to write down your new serial number and keep it somewhere safe.Hope this helps a bit! *^_^*

Please, for the love of God, follow http://mobile.blizzard.com, and it works there, dead centre, "Add mobile Auth.", and the list of phones aren't endless but very very awesome. £0.50 for a mobile £9 donglie.

@i.like.muse As I pointed out to my friends, a software application implementation of a 1 time pad is easier to break when it's in a non-isolated enviroment than a closed loop device. I ploped down the money for the physical authenticator token because I'm in that fringe group that never wants to find out that I've been hacked even if I do visit sites I really shouldn't be going to.
