    Getting ready to migrate from my z30 to the pp.

    How do I migrate my many treasured word substitution shortcuts which took a long time to load over to the pp?

    Is there am app?

    Yes it's a BlackBerry. If you have something bad to say... speak to Easton!

    While I'm not sure, I think if you switch devices, it should copy over your Word Sub list

    Thanks Jaydee but I don't think it does. I recall when I switched from my z10 to my z30 I had to re-enter them all which is a real pain.

    I may be wrong and hope someone can confirm!

    I think it comes over from settings when you do device switch.

    Think you're going to have to re-enter them. Don't remember ever changing devices where they were restored.

    When I switched devices from my Q10 to the Passport, I used BB Link... they all came over fine.

    That's what I was afraid of. No app available to help?

    None that I'm aware of. You would think they would be stored with settings when you backup with Link, but I just don't remember that being the case.

    That's what I did. It worked fine.

    Same here. Link handles them, under "device settings". Unfortunately, no third-party app can save them, yet.

    device settings restored via link worked fine here too I think, but my list is so small, and it was a while ago so you have me wondering. Did you try that yet? I'd love to know if that works out for the next time I need to do a reinstall

    I have about 500 Word Sub entries, and Link got them all from Q10 to Passport.

    But one thing you can't depend upon with Link is being able to restore settings etc. if you downgrade your OS, for example from 10.3 to 10.2. There's no reason why you should find yourself in that predicament, but just be aware of it.

    Thanks. So in link when I restore or change devices, I need to pay attention to the settings field then.
