    I currently have a Z10 which I'm going to sell next week Friday.

    As soon as I get the funds from that sale, I'm going to pull the trigger on a white Z30 (wish I could afford the Passport. Alas, I cannot).

    So what I want to know is this:

    If I back up my Z10, would I be able to restore that back up file to my Z30? Truth be told, it's only 3 apps I'm concerned about restoring. Contacts, Calendar and Password Keeper.

    Device Switch is definitely not an option because it'll be at least 4 weeks before I get my Z30.

    So... any help? Especially from you folks that have multiple BB10 devices.

    PS: As an aside, how great would it be if BB10 allowed us to backup any & all apps locally? I'm not a big fan of cloud storage, and I, like most smartphone owners I know, have a sizable SD card in my phone. In fact, I wouldn't mind at all if I were able to back up the entire OS to my SD card and restore from it as well. Just a thought...

    Yes you can use your backup from your Z10.
    Password Keeper has a backup feature that you can save to your sd card.
    Contacts - number of apps you can get that will backup to your sd card - or if you have your contacts synced to an email account, they can be restored that way.
    In fact there are some apps that will allow for back up of many things - Just search BB World.

    Thanks Hamsterwheel.

    I figured I would be able to. I just wanted to be sure.

    If you have a lot of passwords I suggest you move a backup copy to a PC as well. Just a precaution

    I am not positive on this one, but I think I remember the Device Switch process having an option to restore from backup. You could try a test run while you have your Z10, I suppose (just to see the options without transferring anything).
