Data can be transferred between devices using Bluetooth, NFC, Nearby Share and also using a PC.
Transfer using Bluetooth:
1. Turn on Bluetooth on both devices. On your Cat phone, you can switch this on by pulling the notification bar down and selecting Bluetooth. You can also turn this on by going to Settings > Connected devices > Pair new device.
2. Once this is on, please connect both devices. On your Cat phone, go to Settings > Connected devices > Pair new device > Select the device to connect with under Available devices > Select PAIR.
3. To share files through Bluetooth, select the file you would like to send, tap the Share Icon and select Bluetooth.
4. Select the device you are connected to and the file will be transferred.
Note: To send multiple files through Bluetooth, press and hold to select these and then tap share. This will send them all at once, instead of sending individually.
Note: The above steps work with devices on Android 10 and 11. On Android 8 go to Settings > Connected devices > Bluetooth > Select the device to connect with under Available devices > Select PAIR.
On Android 6 & 7 go to Settings > Bluetooth > Select the device to connect with under Available devices > Select PAIR.
Transfer using NFC:
1. Turn on NFC by swiping down the notification bar, tap and hold NFC, the screen will switch to Connected devices. Alternatively, this can be turned on in Settings > Connected devices > Connection preferences > Enable NFC and Android Beam.
2. Navigate to the file you want to share. Select the file. To select multiple files, press and hold to select these. Tap the share icon > select Share via Android Beam > on screen there will be the message Tap another device to complete.
3. Ensuring the other device is unlocked, place these together back-to-back and you will hear a chime and feel a vibration and the file(s) will be sent over to the other device.
Note: Please be advised that in Android 10 the NFC function of Android Beam to share files has been deprecated. Devices with Android 10 or higher have no Android Beam and if you switch on NFC and hold two devices with Android 10 or higher back-to-back there will only be a signal sound and nothing else will happen. The same applies if you try this with a device on Android 8 with Android Beam switched on and hold that back-to-back with a device on Android 10 or higher.
Transfer using Nearby Share:
1. Nearby Share can be turned on by going to Settings > Connected devices > Connection preferences > Nearby Share > On.
2. To share files this way, navigate to the file you would like to send and select this with a long press.
3. Tap the Share icon and select Nearby Share. Allow access to WiFi and Bluetooth if this is the first time using this function.
4. Your phone will look for nearby devices. Select the device to share this with and select Accept on the receiving device. The file will be sent through.
Transfer using a PC:
1. Connect your device to a PC with a USB cable.
2. Swipe down from the top of the display to open the notification panel and tap Charging this device via USB to access more options.
3. Tap File Transfer to share files to your PC.
4. On the PC, your phone should be displayed as a removable device. Click on the removable device to access your phone's internal storage. If a memory card is inserted, the microSD card details will also be visible.
5. Once the files are stored on a PC, these can be moved to your new device by connecting this to the PC with a USB cable and moving the files to the phone's internal storage.
