    I currently have a Z10 and am thinking about getting a Z30 too. Just curious, would I be able to transfer all my contacts, media, apps and settings from Z10 to Z30 via BlackBerry Link?

    I've tried it and the answer is MUST UPDATE Z10 TO 10.2 ! thats what my BB Link message was.


    Frustrating but I guess people who bought the Z30 will have to wait for the update 10.2 on the Z10 to complete the device switch using link.

    SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME I AM WRONG

    Could you not upgrade Z10 to one of the leaked versions of 10.2?

    Can someone else please confirm this. I was just on my way downtown to get the 30, but I might wait now for the update on the 10 and a screen protector....

    Can I transfer over all my settings, apps, and contacts from my 10 to the 30 properly without 10.2 on my 10??

    If you are using a 10.2.1.XXX leaked build, you CANNOT restore to an official or leaked 10.2.0.XXX build even if you change the XML settings.

    Then you should have no problems. Backup your phone before you leave and restore once you are home

    Are you using the BlackBerry Link software? I did a standard backup of my Z10 (on version 10.1) and then took the Z10 to exchange it for a Z30. Brought the Z30 home, plugged in and loaded the Z10 backup file to the Z30, with no issues.

    I've done the same; was the only time Link worked faultlessly.

    You can update no problem unless it is a leak os. You have to have the z30 on your blackberry id and link does it flawless. Backup z10, set up z30, restore from the z10 backup. That's it. Needed temp password for twitter, that was the only thing. But I use blaq instead of native twitter. It even asks to move BBM when you click it.

    That's good to know. Sounds like there are no issues transferring the data from Z10 to Z30, even with Z10 on 10.1. Incidentally, with the 10.2 around the corner for Z10, the chances are many people will get to update the Z10 before they get their hands on the Z30 anyway, which may make the transition even smoother!

    Thank you! This is both great news, and bad news.
    The good is that I can now get the new 30.
    The bad is I am away at work now and won't be back home for a few days to get the new phone..
    Oh well, hopefully they will have screen savers by then.

    Thanks again everyone for the encouraging news!

    So just to be clear... if I was running a leaked os on my z10 (10.2.1) and backed it up, I can't use the backup to restore data to my z30?

    Not unless the z30 had an os with a higher number or equal os version.

    I've got both my devices on the latest 10.2.1, yet I get the same error message!

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I was able to load a leaked 10.2.1.1925 backup from my Verizon Z10 to my new Verizon Z30 already loaded with 10.2.1.2228 through Sachesi. All my games/apps work as well. It almost seems like a hit or miss thing but should be a fluid transfer :/.

    For Birds and Peter I wouldn't try and transfer the data, but backup and restore seems to be the best option. The transfer option through link looks like it's only for the legacy devices moving to BB10.
