    OK. Transferring everything I can from my old Key2 to a new Key2. I read all I could about using content transfer etc... but have a question about the order of things:
    1. Should I move the sim card before or after the transfer?
    2. Should I move the memory card before or after the transfer?
    3. Should I download the apps on the new Key2 before I transfer everything or after?
    4. Any other prep with the new phone I need to do prior to transferring everything?

    Appreciate anything anyone would like to add in addition to the answers.
    Thanks in advance.

    What's wrong with the built-in Google backup?

    To be fair, it won't back up BB-specific apps (which don't seem to use Drive cloud sync) and there may be other apps that don't use Drive either. But, yes, for everything else, it's as simple as logging into the new phone and clicking "restore".

    Google backup is your best bet. It tends to work really well. The BlackBerry content transfer app isn't worth the headache.

    I'm going from a DTEK 60 to a KEY 2. Did anybody answer the question about when to move the sim card? Thanks!

    You can just move it from your old phone to the new one once you backed everything up.
