What data?

by rproffitt Moderator In reply to how to copy android to an ...

I usually just sync my old phone to the usual Google cloud so I have my phone list and such then log in and sync and I'm good to go.

Apps rarely move, app data movement changes with each app.

That said, try Motorola Migrate at https://help.motorola.com/hc/apps/migrate/15/en-us/es07251303.html

Apps come and go but for me the calendar and contacts sync with my google login. Here's a discussion on that:
1. CONTACTS: https://support.google.com/contacts/answer/9423168?hl=en
2. CALENDAR: https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/6261951

Remember I assume you are using the Google calendar, contacts and the Google eco-system.

It appears Migrate is no more. Turns out for what you need, it's not needed.

I used Share It to get some files but discovered that the old phone is using blackberry contacts.

I'm going to check into getting contacts and phone info from outlook on my pc.

Thanks

Good to know what contact system you used.

It appears that Blackberry's of OS 5.0 and higher can sync contacts to Gmail.

copying data

You'll need to make sure that all the relevant data on your old phone is backed up to the cloud before you make the switch to your new phone. Google automatically backs up contacts, call logs, texts, and settings — including Do Not Disturb details — to Drive, so you'll be able to restore all that data to your new phone just by logging in with your Google account during initial configuration.

Best of all, the data that's automatically backed up by Google doesn't count toward your storage quota, so you don't have to worry about running out of storage. The feature backs up call history, app data, contacts, device and home screen settings, and text messages. So before you switch to a new phone, it makes sense to see if this data is already on the cloud.
