From Lynx to IB

Hello everybody,
I'm thinking about switching from Lynx directly to IB and want to ask if there can be some problems. Or maybe someone did this before and can explain about his experience?

I did this a few years ago (in 2011 or 2012) and there were no problems. I think I used a different email address. I first opened the IB account and then transfered all positions/cash via internal transfer (from account management).

I have also heard about a 6 month black list period (was more recent information).

When you close account must wait 6 months and than you can open account direct by IB.
