If you’ve been a BlackBerry lifer, the prospect of picking up all the content from your BlackBerry 10 device and moving on to Android might have you wavering about a purchase of the BlackBerry Priv. Here, a good new is for you. To make a good preparation for the Priv launch, Blackberry has placed a new app called Blackberry Content Transfer app, which will make it easier to move all of your content from your Blackberry 10 smartphone to your new Priv by Blackberry.
How Blackberry Content Transfer works?
The Content Transfer app moves data that is saved in the storage space on your Blackberry 10 (10.2.1 and later device) in the following two ways:
Data that is associated with a web-based account, such as contacts and calendar events, is transferred when you add the account to your new device.
Data that is saved to a media card is transferred when you insert the media card into your new device. Your data can be transferred with password-protected encryption using Google Drive, your media card, or a private Wi-Fi network.
Content Transfer moves the following data from your BlackBerry 10 device:
Contacts, Calendar, Pictures, Videos, Music, Text Messages (SMS), Notes, Tasks, Documents, Email Accounts
For users who are planning on picking up a Priv, there’s not a lot you can do with the app right now aside from backing up your device but, if you’re planning on, you might want to get it downloaded now and check it out either way. There will presumably be an Android counterpart app as well as we’ve seen the icon plenty of times in previous Priv images, so that’s how you’ll go about restoring your backed up content onto the Priv.
