Transfer data from a BlackBerry or Windows Phone to a Pixel
Data that you've saved to your Google Account automatically shows on your Pixel phone after you sign in. You can move other data with the steps below.
Note: The Quick Switch Adapter that comes in the box with your Pixel doesn't work with BlackBerry or Windows Phone.
Step 1: Get ready to copy
- Charge both phones.
- Sync your BlackBerry or Windows Phone to your Google Account.
- Insert your SIM card into your Pixel phone. Learn how.
Tip: If Project Fi is your mobile carrier, you can use eSIM or a SIM card.
- Turn on your Pixel phone.
- Tap Start Set up as new. Follow the on-screen steps.
- If you pick a different option, you'll see: "Phone may not be supported."
- If you don't see "Start," your Pixel is already set up. You can still copy your data at any time.
Continue using Google Account contacts
If you already use contacts in your Google Account, like in Gmail, you'll see them in your communication apps on your Pixel phone.
Add contacts from another email provider
If you use contacts with another web-based email provider, you can import those contacts into your Google Account. For example, you can import from Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo, and AOL.
Add contacts from a SIM card
If your contacts are on a SIM card, you can import them.
Continue using Google Calendar
If you already use Google Calendar, open your Pixel phone's Calendar app . You'll see your events.
Add events from another calendar app
You can import events from most calendar apps to Google Calendar. For example, you can import from Outlook Calendar.
Copy from your Google Account
You can upload content from your current phone or computer to your Google Account. Your Pixel phone automatically shows the content in your Google Account. Learn how to:
- Transfer music with Google Play.
- Upload files and folders to Google Drive.
- Back up photos and videos to Google Photos.
Copy by USB cable
You can transfer content directly from your computer to your Pixel phone with a USB cable.
Step 3: Switch to Android features
You can download many of the apps that you had on your Windows Phone or BlackBerry from Google Play.
You could have to pay for the Android versions of some apps. To transfer subscription services to your Pixel phone for free, sign in after you download the app.
