Copy of contacts between two BB one Q5 and one Q10 without Outlook

Hi,

 

I've recently bought a Q10 and a Q5 and i'm looking for a method to copy the contacts of the Q10 on the Q5.


Is it posssible without an application like Outlook? With Hotmail or Gmail for example or BBlink ?

 

Version BB 10.2.0.429.

BBlink 1.2.2.13

 

Best regards.

 

Marc

Yes, you can backup the Q10 using Link, and restore that backup to the Q5... AS LONG AS both devices have the same BBID.  Just backup your Q10 > Backup > Custom backup > Settings. and on the Q5, restore only the Settings.

I am doing the same right this morning from a Z10 to a Z30.

 

Open Link.

Connect the NEW Q5. It will ask if you want to switch devices. Say yes.

You will be asked to connect the OLD device to the USB. Do it.

Link will ask and you will confirm to copy all data from the old device.

Upon completion of the backup, you will be asked to reconnect the NEW device...


and the backup will restore to the new.

OK. It works fine.


I've just made a backup with BBlink of the settings of my Q10 and then connect the new Q5 and restore the settings.

 

All my contacts are present on the Q5.

 

Thanks a lot.

 

Best regards.
