    Yesterday I restored my Z10 data to Q10
    Everything was restored, nothing left
    BUT, you should restore from earlier OS to newest OS
    If it is difficult for you, just use Darcy tools to make a "fake" whatever earlier OS you want

    LINK has a switch devices option....

    Most of my data like Contacts, Calendar, Task are all synced to the "cloud" so no problem with new device - BlackBerry or otherwise.

    Pictures & Video & Documents are on the SD card and backed up to a BOX account, so again no problem with new device.

    Application installed via App World are easily reinstalled.

    It's Application data that you will have to worry about - LINK should work with this info. But it doesn't hurt to find it and make copies manually.

    You can restore all of it as if you were transferring to another Z10. The only thing you have to make sure of is that the OS on the Z30 is either the same or newer version. If it's older, you won't be able to restore the data. That was the problem I had with mine. I was running 424 on my Z10 and my Z30 came with 414. It told me I couldn't transfer the data. I had to load the 575 leak and then do a restore for it to transfer

    Yes. I switched from z10 to z30. I backed up z10 then restored to z30. All went fine. Use same blackberry id.

    Can you fo something for me. I did the switch also and had one problem that passed me off. I wrote about it. Search dark theme. Go to contacts and swipe down settings. On default theme (I'm assuming it's on dark) switch it it light or opposite if it's light switch to dark. Then close out contacts completely, wait 10 second and open contacts again. See if the theme was switched. Mine would not switch to light. Always defaulted to dark.
    Try it.
    Thanks

    What OS are you running? I'm on the 10.2.1.575 leak and it does the same thing. I think it's a bug

    If you read my thread "dark theme" someone replied it seems to be a bug in the settings restore if your transferring settings to Z30. And he was right. I did I fresh install without restoring and it's working fine. I'm on the new leak 0.8xxx OS

    I think I prefer to have all me restored than the ability to switch colours. Lol. Besides, I like the dark theme
