Authenticator question

I currently own a BlackBerry, but in the coming months I will be replacing it with an iPhone.

If I download the Moblie Authenticator for BlackBerry, and use it for D3, will I have a problem when I switch over to the iPhone?

<--- not really sure how Authenticators work

Authenticators essentially generate a pseudo-random sequence of numbers that acts as a type of secondary password whenever you log into your Blizzard account, I won't discuss in detail how this process actually occurs. When you download the mobile authenticator for your BlackBerry, that specific authenticator is bound to your Blizzard account. Meaning, before you switch to your iPhone, you need to unbind it first, otherwise you will encounter some nasty problems (e.g. you might need Blizzard Customer Service).
