Guides for Transferring from Android, iPhone or BlackBerry to BlackBerry 10

Personal contacts, files & media - US-000120

BlackBerry told us that they did everything they could to make transferring to BlackBerry 10 as easy as possible. They offer three ways to get your data from BlackBerry 7 to BlackBerry 10 along with different routes for iPhone and Android users. iPhone users will have the hardest time since they first need to get their contacts synchronized to a third party service other than iCloud. For Android users it is as simple as just setting up their Gmail account.

RIM posted up some nice guides along with details on how the transfer of contacts, files, and media will work to BlackBerry 10. Sadly I am still not seeing any signs of a Microsoft Outlook Sync connector but I am glad to see that wireless Gmail, Yahoo, and other sync accounts are working very nicely. On the other hand BlackBerry legacy users get some nice tools that can perform the transfer using your memory card, BlackBerry Link pc software, or simply use Gmail sync through BIS.

Here is what will be transferred for BlackBerry 7 devices:

  • Contacts
  • Files (pictures, music, documents)
  • Calendar items
  • Tasks and Memos
  • BBM™ contacts
  • Browser bookmarks and folders
  • Alarm/clock settings
  • Text/SMS/MMS/PIN messages
  • Phone Call Logs
  • WLAN Profiles (for non-enterprise networks)
  • Password Keeper entries

I highly recommend you check out the guides here or you can find simpler PDF guides at the links below:

  1. So what about existing BES users. I have over 70 people on BES 5 that all have OS 7 devices. They are all getting BB 10 devices What do I do to bring them online on the new BES 10 server with their old content. Do I just not back them up and let BES 10 sync down all their settings? Do you do a device transfer from BES 5 device to the BES 10 device then activate? No one has said what corporate users should do.
