I'm not sure if it works differently if you actually try to transfer an old account, but what my sister did was go to the BodyMedia site, click the "Get Started" link at the top, then follow the instructions for entering the serial number off the device since she didn't have the activation code from the box anymore (I'd thrown the box away years ago).
I know, I just bought a CORE about a month and a half ago because I preferred the BodyMedia site and wanted the option to link up with my SP account. Then less than a month later I got that email about BodyBugg migrating over to BodyMedia. Pretty much wasted $100! Oh well. I gave my old BodyBugg to my sister and she has it up and running with the BodyMedia site now.
Wow, that is great! I had a BodyBugg initially but grew dissatisfied with the reporting and support that Apex offered, so I got a BodyMedia Link. I'm much happier with the web interface and reporting that BodyMedia gives, plus BodyMedia links up with SparkPeople and a number of other sites. I think most BodyBugg owners will like the change.
