Default Backberry Z10/Z30 OS compatibility

Please Login to Remove!

Hello folks,

I had a Blackberry Z30 which became faulty by accident but I had made a full backup with OS version 10.03.01. I now own a Z10 and I'd like to know whether my previous Z30 backup is compatible with the Z10.

Normally the backup has your email, contacts and added Apps and some specific BB related data.

If you have a Z10 do a device switch and the Link software will move your data to the Z10. DO NOT attempt to load directly any apps designed only for the Z30.

If you wish to do a selective restore from the Z30 backup. Setup the Z10 and using Link do a restore but only for your contacts and email . Download and install any apps you want just as long as the are Z10 apps. If you have any side loaded Android apps you will have to use side loading to reinstall them on the Z10.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button

Z10 on BES
Z10 on BIS
