This seems like an easy way to grab *most* of my data from my old phone and onto a new one. I think there is some app-specific data that I'll have to move myself, but the basics like music, pictures, messages, etc seem to be transferring. It wasn't working at first. I needed to turn off cellular/mobile data on both phones before the old phone correctly connected to the new one. After that, smooth sailing.
Don't work. I've upgraded from the m8 to the m10 and I used the transfer tool as I've previously done in the past and which worked great as it transferred everything and put everything in the right place. But now it only transfers certain things and all the apps you previously had on you original phone doesn't come across like it did in the past. Very disappointing and very frustrating.
Lost all my Audio Recordings This program sucks plainly compared to Samsung Smart Switch - I lost all my audio recordings when I switched from s6 to htc 10! The program should 100% transfer contents to new htc phone but my audio recordings were not transfered, and I had already factory reset my s6 when I knew about this hence was not able to get my recordings back. Very, very disappointed!
Good when sorted I had real problems getting this to work. The problem was phones would not link. The reason is the phones try and link to another network, not each other. FIX is easy. Switch off mobile data in settings. Then either go somewhere where no recognised Wi-Fi or switch your home network off (so phones have nothing to connect to). Then Settings, WiFi, and using the three dots, go to Wi-Fi direct. After a minute the phones will recognise each other. Allow them to connect. Transfer app then works fine.
Had a horrible experience just now. I finally got it working just enough that it succeeded in deleting all my photos. Yuck! What an awful interface. I just didn't understand that when it said "Click to add or remove files on your device" it meant it would delete them all. Bummer!
Initial trouble with no connection but works fine when "Hot spot" WiFi is connected I had so much trouble from transferring htcm9 to htc10. Couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work, internet would cut out on both phones when trying to retrieve number. Where as, all my previous HTC transfers were very easy to do. Finally figured out that the WiFi hot spot that kept getting switched on , on the HTC10 was key to getting the code. Had to switch the hotspot 'on', on the old handset for the code to finally appear. Hallelujah it worked. Should be put in instructions clearly though.
