Re: Notepad

The default app for notes can synchronize with Evernote so you could create an account on www.evernote.com and then go to Notes -> [menu] -> Settings -> Evernote account settings to synchronize your notes there.

If you have a USB-drive and USB-adapter you could also make a backup to the USB-drive using Backup&restore and then restore that backup in your Z.

Re: Notepad

You mean if you make a backup to the internal memory instead of a USB-drive using Backup&restore? In that case you need to copy the folder ".semc-fullbackup" to a computer and then move it to the root of the Z. If you're just going to transfer notes i think Evernote would be easier though.

Re: Notepad

Hi, I'm looking for help with similar problem. I wrote to Sony Mobile Service in Poland but they did not answer. I have copy made on My Xperia P wit Backup and Restore app. Now  Xperia P is broken, but I have .semc fullbackup folder on my PC. I use now Xperia L. Is it really possible to transfer this data? It is very important for me to have all my contacts and sms back. If yes, how to do that? I would appreciate any help
