    The first question i dont now what you are talking about.
    The question of the charger i am not sure but i use my 9360 charger to charge my z10.
    And the third question of the folder i think that is the folder where the sideloaded apps data goes.

    BB Link dont transfer my old messages (SMS) and call log history,I tried twice
    BB Protect does not work for me because i don't have a BB data plan on my old phone,altough i think this is ridicoulos to ask for BIS BES just to transfer contacts and eveything from old to new phone......

    any other tips???

    It's not advised to use chargers from legacy devices.
    You might want to look into getting a new charger

    If you did a one time device switch, everything would have come over to new device. Any official BlackBerry charger will work. Stay away from Asian knock off's.

    via CB10 on Q5
    Nothing to do with marketing, as you would see from the forums . Just making a suggestion, it's your choice.

    Also since I didn't see any answer for this, the Android folder has to do with the Android run time and apps.
    BB10 had the ability to run ported Android apps, downloaded from BBWORLD and to sideload android apps directly on to the device - there are a lot of threads and how tos if you decide you want to try sideloading.

    Hmm that still hasn't worked?
    Have you tried to back up the old BB with BlackBerry Desktop Manager and then restoring that back up to Q5 via link?

    Oh also make sure your software is up to date
