OVERVIEW
The BlackBerry Content Transfer app enables you to move local data from your previous Android, iOS, BlackBerry 10, or BlackBerry 7 device to your new BlackBerry Smartphone Powered by Android. You can move pictures, videos, contacts, and more.

For more information and to download BlackBerry Content Transfer on your previous device, visit www.blackberry.com/transfer.

Note:

BlackBerry Content Transfer does not transfer data that is associated with a web-based email or corporate email account. For example, contacts from your Gmail or work email account or documents in Dropbox. It also does not transfer data that is saved to a media card.
 
The amount of media that can be transferred is limited to the available storage on the destination BlackBerry Smartphone Powered by Android device. If the total amount of media exceeds the storage space available on the device, you will need to deselect media during the transfer process. Once your other data is transferred you can add additional storage, such as a microSD card, to the device and transfer the remaining media using another method such as USB transfer.​
For information about transferring certain types of data, see the Content Transfer FAQ.

To learn more, take the Introducing and Using the BlackBerry Content Transfer App for Android BlackBerry Training course.

How do I move local data from my BlackBerry 10 OS device to BlackBerry Smartphone Powered by Android?


Moving data from a BlackBerry OS 6 or earlier smartphone to BlackBerry Smartphone Powered by Android

Contacts and Calendar entries:

Complete the following tasks to sync your contacts and calendar entries from your previous device to your BlackBerry Smartphone Powered by Android.

Task 1 - Sync to Microsoft Outlook:

Note: If your data is already synced to Microsoft Outlook, skip to Task 2 ( Export the contacts and calendar entries).

Ensure the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Software is installed on your computer (Download).
Open BlackBerry Desktop Software and connect the BlackBerry 6 or earlier device via USB.
In the BlackBerry Desktop Software for Windows User Guide, follow the steps in the Configure your contact synchronization options and Configure your calendar synchronization options sections.
Note: When selecting the Sync direction section ensure you are selecting the correct option. For example, if you've never done a wired sync and only want to move entries from your device to your computer, click One way to your computer only.
Once configured, follow the steps on page 27 under Synchronize your organizer data to complete the sync process.
Note: If you encounter an issue during the sync process access the Troubleshooting section on page 29.
Task 2 - ​Export from Microsoft Outlook to a file​:

To export contacts and calendar entries from Microsoft Outlook, click the link below for your specific version of Outlook. You'll be taken to the appropriate Microsoft Support article for your version of Outlook, which will provide the needed steps. Once you've completed the export, return to this article and begin Task 3.

Note: Make sure to export to a file type that is compatible with the email provider that you'll be importing it to. For example, Gmail supports .csv files for contacts and .csv or .ics files for calendar entries, while Outlook.com supports .csv files for contact entries, but only .ics files for calendar entries. If you're not sure which to choose, check with your email provider to see which format is supported.
Export from Outlook 2010
Note: For step 7 in the Microsoft Outlook export instructions, ensure you select all the folders from the .pst file that you want to export such as contact entries, calendar entries etc.

Memos and Tasks:
If you have local memos or tasks you can email them to yourself and manually add them to the email account.
