This is frustrating. The #1 thing phone users want to to is transfer there old data, pics, text msgs, and phone book to new one. The little manual got with my nice looking G5 today does not even mention the topic, says follow the phone prompts.
OK did that it had a plan to bluetooth it from one to other. I followed instructions and it did see the old phone, and had the right code and said to do it. It tried 30 secs then said it could not work, that repeated twice. Then fourth time it seemed to work, said transferring data, came back in 5 mins still working, then 30 mins, then an hour. Said it was still working but doubted that was true. At that point figured it was not working so only option had was to “setup phone from scratch as new phone” And sure enough it had no data, only google phone list if I started typing in a name.
So not one text came across. Then went on this site and saw Motorola Migrate which sounds good, but no longer exists!.
Then saw this link on this Rep site https://www.coolmuster.com/phone-transfer/transfer-sms-from-motorola-to-motorola.html and downloaded it so as to tranfer via two usb cables from one to the other, fire it up then it warns me that it will only transfer 20 text msgs unless you buy a registered version. So you have to buy software to transfer your texts??
I have used cell phones for 25 years. It has always been a pain to transfer, when is this industry ever going to get their act together. I thought it had until the built in system failed.
Please help, thanks.
