  • How do I transfer data from my existing mobile phone (iPhone) to Nothing Phone (2a)?

    Switch from an iPhone to a Nothing phone

    Step 1: Get ready to set up your new Nothing phone.
    Make sure you have the following items:

    1. Your fully charged Android phone on the latest software and its charging cable.
    2. Your new, fully charged Nothing phone.
    3. A good WiFi connection.
    Important: we recommend using a Google account to ensure you can download apps and can get all content copied to your new device.

    Step 2: Prepare your iPhone
    On your iPhone, turn off iMessage and Facetime.

    1. While your SIM card is still in your iPhone, go to Settings > Messages > Turn off iMessage.
    2. Then do the same for FaceTime. Go to Settings > FaceTime > Turn off FaceTime.
    3. If you have other Apple devices, deregister your phone number from them too. You can continue using iMessage, but make sure your phone number isn’t still registered on those devices.

    If you already removed your SIM card, ask Apple to deregister your phone number with iMessage.

    Step 3: Insert your SIM card and connect to WiFi
    Now you're ready to set up your new phone. Turn on your Nothing phone and tap → in the setup wizard. You can change your phone’s language here, too.

    If you have a SIM card, insert it now and then connect to a WiFi or mobile network. If not, the data won’t copy from your old device to your new one.

    Step 4: Connect the phones

    When Copy Apps and Data appears on your screen, tap Next.
    1. Turn your iPhone on and unlock it. Get the iPhone cable to charge your phone.

    2. Plug the smaller end of the cable into your iPhone and the larger one into into your Nothing phone.

    3. On your iPhone, confirm it's OK to connect.

    4. On your Nothing phone, enter your Google account password, and tap Sign in.

    When you copy data using a cable, your texts, photos, contacts, most apps and music will transfer.

    Step 5: Copy your data
    If you don’t want to transfer specific data, uncheck the box next to it. When you’re ready, tap Copy.

    Once your data is copied to your Nothing Phone, tap Finished. If one of your apps didn’t transfer, you can download it through the Google Play Store.

    Note: depending on how much data your phone has, the transfer can take anywhere between a few minutes to over an hour.
