    What method did you use? Did you do a device backup on your Q/Z and then a restore on the Passport?

    I know some people were having trouble with the Amazon App store if they had it installed. Any other concerns?

    That's what I did. Amazon stopped working. Nice to know I'm not the only one! Everything else was flawless.

    Is there a transfer app for bb10 devices or is a restore the only way?

    I've deleted all android apps to avoid any potential conflicts there

    There is a new wifi option where you connect both phones to the same wifi source. I couldn't try this as my old phone was exchanged.

    Activate link. If you have 2 USB cables, you can do the transfer with the two devices. No need to restore. Just click transfer to a new device button and follow the steps. Really easy. Worked great.

    when I use the device switch option, it asks from BBiD on passport, can I use the same BBID which I have on Q10? When we move BBID it associates the new phone with it, will the old Q10 be inaccessible?

    Use the device switch app...you can download it from the blackberry app store...
    Using blackberry link via PC tends to cause issues like battery drain and contacts not showing up on the call log due to email and syncing...

    No, the Q10 will still be accessible, but you can only have your BBID associated with one device at a time. Meaning that BBM won't "work" on the Q10 unless you want to keep reassociating the phone with your BBID each time.

    But you go and create a new bbid for your Q10 backup right?

    I restored from a Z10 backup to my PP and the keyboard stopped glowing in the dark. Some of the settings were not working correctly. So I started it from scratch and my PP came alive once again.

    Avoid restore! Save your contacts in sim card/cloud services. Any media/files/mp3 in sd card and just transfer over to the new phone. Restoring may cause account syncing problems i.e. vanishing/ no notifications even if it shows in hub. Battery goes crazy for a while too. Just don't. Starting fresh is better.
