Use the latest version of Xperia Transfer app on both devices, and try to backup to the cloud.

Re: xperia transfer app

Both versions of the app are up-to-date surely the Xperia transfer would be quicker when both phones are connected to the same wifi router and are sat next to each other

What kind of error do you get? Did you manage to pair the devices? Xperia transfer uses the WiFi Direct service, not the WiFi router.

Re: xperia transfer app

Better use Xperia Companion, somehow it is more reliable.

Re: xperia transfer app

using the companion to transfer data/files was like looking at a knitting pattern,there is nothing in it that says transfer saved data in one easy step,instead it's a case of click on this file,open-,then choose another file,open,then choose another file,i ended up with a list of about 30 folders,   ball ache if you ask me,ended up using the cloud transfer otion(it spoke english on both devices,in other words it told you exactly what to do)

Re: xperia transfer app

How do you transfer your data from an old Sony phone to another new Sony phone? Just copying and pasting thousands of data from the Android phone to computer, and then move them from computer to another Android mobile? Don't you think it is complex? Any shortcut to transfer text messages from Sony to Sony? Of course we have! An extraordinary transferring tool like Phone Transfer is an outstanding phone to phone SMS transfer tool to help you transfer not only SMS, but also contacts, photos, videos, music, apps and more between Sony devices. It can not only transfer contact, phone numbers and text content, but also can copy sent and received time, and other more information related to text messages.
