Get a new phone for the holidays? This app makes it easy to transfer content between iOS and Android devices
Did you just get a new Apple iPhone for the holidays, and need to transfer data from your current Android phone? Or perhaps you're leaving the iOS ecosystem for the Android platform. Either way, the T-Mobile Content Transfer app will help you with this task, even if you're not a T-Mobile customer. Just yesterday, T-Mobile released a new video hosted by Content Director Des Smith that shows you how to use the app to move over photos, videos,music and your contacts.
First, you must load the app on both your old and new phones from the App Store or Google Play Store. Using the T-Mobile Content Transfer app requires both phones to be connected to the same Wi-Fi signal. Open the app on both devices and accept all permissions. On the old phone, tap "From this phone." On the new phone, tap "To this phone." A QR code will appear on the old phone, and you need to scan it using the new handset. Select the content you want transferred, and tap the Transfer button on the new device. Keep in mind that content protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) cannot be transferred.
The app will notify you when the transfer process is complete. You can see the process in action by clicking on the video at the top of this article.
