Copying emails on 9700 to Q10



How do I move my old email from a BB Bold 9700 to a new Q10?

I use Yahoo email, gmail and a business one provided by fasthosts?


Can anyone help?

I have tried using BB Desktop Manager, but didnt copy the emails. 

When I added a new email account on the Q10, I added the yahoo.... it downloaded more then 10,000 emails from the last few years, which is un-necessary....

Hey hillevorhand,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


Email accounts and messages from legacy BlackBerry smartphones can not be migrated to a BlackBerry 10 smartphone.  This KB article will explain what data can not be migrated: www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB33523


Let me know if you have any more questions.

Re: Copying emails on 9700 to Q10

I have this issue as well. The new blackberry doesn't use the BIS, it works more like an iphone, so the emails cant be transferred over or back again to your old phone. I had to create a separate blackberry id for the q10 and am using my old account on my bold so I can access my old emails still. Maybe blackberry will rethink it for the next update.
