Since the release of Samsung Galaxy S7/S6/S5, millions of people switched their phone from Blackberry to Samsung Galaxy. And this situation still continues nowadays. As we all know, smartphone has been playing an essential role in our life. When considering change the device, we need to think about how to transfer the data from the old device to new one. Blackberry is well known for its data security, so it makes a bit harder to move the data from Blackberry phone to another. A lot of people will encounter this problem and many of them don't know what to do. That's the reason why I am writing this tutorial here.


In the tutorial, I will introduce a very convenient and effective tool called Mobile Transfer. One of its primary functions is to help people transfer data from one device to other in a quite easy way. The transfer will be done within a few clicks. You don't need to take hours to figure out how to do it by yourself. Below is the support list of phone models and file types:


Blackberry Phone: Priv/Passport/Classic/Leap/Z3/Z30/Q10/Z10/Q5/Blod/Torch/Curve

Tutorial: How to Copy Data from Blackberry to Samsun Galaxy S7/S6

Step 1 Backup Blackberry Phone Data to Computer

Blackberry has a strict policy towards data security so you can't transfer data directly from Blackberry to Galaxy phone. MobileTrans is able to extract data from the backup, and then you can import the data to Galaxy phone.


The good news is that Blackberry offers two programs for users to back up their data. One is Blackberry Desktop Software (for OS 7.1 and earlier) and Blackberry Link for (For OS 10). Download the program accordingly and open the program after installation. The backup and restore feature is displayed on the main screen. Select Backup from the list and choose a local folder to store the backup file. Better to leave the folder in default so that MobileTrans can easily locate it.


Note: Don't add password to the backup file or MobileTrans can't extract file from it.

Step 3 Choose Blackberry Backup Files You Made Before

Click " Restore from Backup" option on the primary window and select Blackberry backup file from the option list. The program will scan the default location for the backup file and list them on the screen if found. If not, please use the add function located the lower left corner to import backup file to the program.



Step 4 Connect Samsung Galaxy Phone to the Computer

Use the USB cable to plug Samsung Galaxy phone (e.g. Galaxy S7 Edge) into the computer, which has the backup file and has MobileTrans installed. A while later, MobileTrans should detect the device and shows the name on the right section of the program.

Step 5 Start Transferring Data from BlackBerry to Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

You can transfer different kinds of data from backup file to S7 Edge, which you can see from the content list. Mark the content you want to transfer and click 'Start Copy' after selection. Then MobileTrans starts to move the selected data to S7 Edge. The whole process will be done in a few minutes and there is a progress bar indicating how many files being transferred.


I am very impressive by this Phone Transfer program for its high efficiency in data transfer. Transferring data between Blackberry device and Samsung Galaxy phone is just one feature of this program. When you change Galaxy phone in future, you can still use it for data migration without any additional fee, no matter it will be an new iPhone, Android, Windows or Symbian phone. As you can see from the main screen, you can also use this program to back up phone data, erase old phone completely before selling. It has been one of my favorite programs since I found it because it saves me a lot of time on managing my devices.
