Moving all my data to new Z3 from Z2?

2018-07-02, 20:53 PM



My Z3Play arrived today.  Is there a way to move evrything from my Z2Force and will the Google data migration move it all?


Do I replace the SD card before or after the migration?  Do I need to keep the SD card in the phone to move the data?


I hope this migration goes as well as the last one (Z2 to Z2)...

Thanks for posting. Did you format your SD Card as internal or portable with your Z2 Force? You can try moving the data to your SD Card and if it's formatted as internal you may need to back it up on your computer and then install your SD Card to your Moto Z3 Play and move the files from your computer. You can only set the SD Card as portable with Z3 Play. Let me know. 


Best regards,
