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.
It does the absolute bare minimum. I've had to basically do all the hard yards myself anyway, like downloading apps again, linking all my logins and accounts, changing settings to how I had my old phone set up and some of the accounts are being stupid to reconnect. Lucky it transferred 8month+ old messages though. And this was even just transferring from a HTC One m8 to m9. I'd hate to be changing phone manufacturers.
Doesn't work anymore. Worked the first time when transferring data from a HTC Desire 601 to a HTC Desire Eye. But now transferring from HTC Desire Eye to another (same phone type but different device) it doesn't work. Sits on the searching page and doesn't move. Constantly turns my WiFi on and off on both devices. Edit: saw someone say to try a hotspot and that didn't work either. I tried both way around.
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.
