According to Slice I should be receiving a package sometime today, the new KEYone from TCL! So in preparation for the latest BlackBerry I thought I would share a few helpful hints.
Whether your switch is from bbos to bbos, bbos to OS10, OS10 to OS10, OS10 to BlackDroid or any other possible combination, I would recommend opening your list of current apps and listing them onto a sheet of paper. Next, put away your BlackBerry and look over the list, review each app one at a time and ask yourself if it’s really necessary. Is this a daily use, occasional use, or was it just a one and done app.
For those apps that fall into the latter category do yourself a favor and delete them. In addition, if there is anything you can transfer to your external memory (SD or microSD) go ahead and transfer it over. If you have an app that sorts through contacts looking for and eliminating duplicates, run that. What you’re trying to accomplish here is freeing up as much internal memory as possible.
If you want to be extra efficient you could write down the names of the folders you have and which apps are contained within.
One last point before you fire-up the ‘BlackBerry Transfer‘ app – if your new ‘Precious’ is pre-owned run a security wipe just to ensure you’re getting a fresh start. If it’s a new Berry simply open the beverage of your choice, run BlackBerry Transfer and before you know it all the planets and stars will align, your lotto numbers will hit, your hair will always look great, and Charlie’s Angels will start a pillow fight in your room (ok, maybe that last one is a bit of a stretch)……
