    Hello all!

    Is there a working soultion to move my text messages to another bb10 device? I would rather not use a link backup restore, because I would like to start 'fresh' on the new one and exporter does not say a thing about importing. Has anyone done this before?

    There is an app in BlackBerry World called SMS Backup.

    Yep. Used it a lot to transfer all my messages between clean OS updates. Basically the same as going from one device to another.

    At least until Dec 31st when BlackBerry World shuts down.

    After that, we have to hope some developer makes their app available to sideload.

    What I have used is an app from BBW called "Device Switch" and here's what it does:

    Data transferred

    Data that is saved locally on your BlackBerry 10 device can be transferred. Data that is synced with a web-based account isn't transferred. The following types of data can be transferred when you use the Device Switch app:

    Contacts info
    Calendar info
    Text messages (SMS)
    Documents
    Pictures
    Videos (non-DRM)
    Music (non-DRM)
    Notes and Tasks from BlackBerry Remember (transferred tasks and notes appear in the Unfiled folder in the Remember app on your new device)

    If you switch your media card to your new device, you can transfer the data that is saved on the media card.

    Does anyone know the structure and content of the 'misc' folder on bb10? The one next to camera, recordings, documents, etc. In the *home* dir of the user?
    What should I move from there?

    Hey wbalogh,

    That's pretty much everything not otherwise specified in a profile folder--app data, Android-related items, etc. I'd copy/backup the whole folder were I you just in case.
