Transferring content from an Android phone

On your old Android™ phone, download the HTC Transfer Tool and use it to transfer your content to your new HTC phone. The types of locally stored content on your old phone that the tool can transfer include contacts, messages, calendar events, web bookmarks, music, photos, and videos. Some settings can also be transferred.
Important:
  1. Do one of the following:
    • If you're setting up your new HTC phone for the first time, choose to transfer content, and then select Transfer from old phone on the Set up phone screen.
    • Go to Settings, and then tap Transfer content.
  2. Choose whether to transfer from an old HTC phone or other Android phone.
  3. Follow the suggestions shown on your new phone to download and install the HTC Transfer Tool to your old phone.
  4. Follow the instructions on the two phones to connect them. When you see a PIN on your old phone, make sure the same PIN also appears on your new phone before you continue.
  5. On your old phone, choose the types of content you want to transfer, and then tap Start.
  6. Wait for the transfer to finish.

Don't have an Internet connection on your old phone?

Don't worry. On your old phone, turn on Wi-Fi® and connect to the hotspot that you see on your new HTC phone. You'll then need to download the HTC Transfer Tool from an HTC webpage on your web browser.
  1. After turning on Wi-Fi, connect your old phone to the hotspot that's shown on your new phone (for example, "‍HTC Transfer Tool 1234"‍).
  2. Go to Settings > Security, and then select the Unknown sources option to allow the download and installation of the tool through your web browser.
  3. Access the HTC webpage on your web browser. Depending on the type of Android phone that you have:
    • The web browser automatically opens to the HTC webpage if you're using an HTC phone.
    • You need to slide the Notifications panel open, and then tap Sign in to Wi-Fi network if you're using another Android phone.
  4. Tap the download button on the HTC webpage.
  5. Slide the Notifications panel open again, and wait until you see a notification that shows the Transfer_tool.apk has been downloaded.
  6. Tap the Transfer_tool.apk notification to install the HTC Transfer Tool.
  7. After installation is complete, open the HTC Transfer Tool.
  8. Choose the types of content you want to transfer, and then tap Start.
  9. Wait for the transfer to finish.
Warning: After installing the HTC Transfer Tool, go back to Settings > Security and make sure to clear the Unknown sources option. This can help protect your phone from installing other insecure apps from the Web.
