How to Transfer Data from BlackBerry Device to Another BlackBerry

Internet is full of free and paid applications that offer to transfer data from one phone to another. Some apps can really complicate the process and consume a large amount of internet (data) allowance as well. It is advisable to choose the simplest process possible. Here are some points that can prove to be helpful while transferring the data from one Blackberry device to another.

Part 1: Tips to switch from one BlackBerry device to Another

BlackBerry's Device Switch app can transfer certain types of files from one device to another without connecting the device to the computer. However, Device Switch app and some other apps cannot transfer BlackBerry apps, email messages, phone call records, browser bookmarks, certain audio- video files, etc. So, connecting the device to the PC seems to be the fastest and safest option to transfer almost all types of files.

After transferring calendar entries, contact info, and other files, your device may not detect them immediately. This is normal, and may happen whenever you transfer large amount of data from one device to another. Just wait for few minutes, and try searching for the concerned data again.

Sometimes, you might not be able to find certain contacts on new device even after completely transferring data from your old device. There is no need to worry; perhaps, your contacts are stored on some web based account. These details would automatically pop-up on your news device once you sign-in to all your email and messaging apps.

Part 2: Best way to transfer data from one BlackBerry device to another

There are several ways including the Device Switch app that can be used to transfer data from one BlackBerry device to the other. However, out of all, the best option is to download BlackBerry's desktop software.

Visit BlackBerry's website, and download the software.

After creating back-up for your old BlackBerry phone, remove the old phone, and connect your new BlackBerry handset to your PC using the same USB cord. Now the BlackBerry software would detect your new device and show its name on the software's interface. Once again, select "Back-up and Restore," and select "Restore". Then, simply click on the file back-up that you created from your old phone. That is it! All the data will get transferred from your PC to your new BlackBerry device within few minutes.

Most importantly, you can organize and create back-up for text messages, and phone history as well. BlackBerry saves all your data in BlackBerry Back-up folder that gets created within your PC's documents folder.

From documents, text messages, contacts, to video and audio files, BlackBerry desktop software creates back-up for almost all types of files from your BlackBerry device.

To transfer your applications from one BlackBerry handset to the other, just log in to BlackBerry world from your new device, and use the same old device's user-id and password.
