Seems to be a bug...

Whenever you hit CONTINUE after pressing Move Data from Android, it force disconnects from Wifi onto Data, so its impossible to actually transfer the data.

BROKEN!

Maybe the issue is owning an android all together ;)


Kidding. Maybe try to reboot and start all over?

I tried and even updated the ios to 9.0.1...Ended up giving up. I'd like to transfer my messages over, but I'm not sitting on a dead phone for Apple to fix it.

It's on the iPhone end, not the Android app.

As soon as you hit continue after the iphone boots up, the wifi switches to 4G, so when I enter the code onto the android app it says no phone to communicate with.

Not only is the app broken, but Apple has the audacity to announce that they will recycle your old Android phone "for free."

Do not fall for this, Android brethren! You can easily make some money by selling it on Craigslist, glyde.com, or heck, even ebay.

You ever try to sell a used Android, dude?
Not yet. I imagine it isn't as easy as selling an iPhone, but heck, I'm sure with a bit of effort, it's possible.

Better to get $40 for it than to let Apple "recycle it for free." :mad: That choice of words really pissed me off!

Why? Apple is just giving them a choice. They're not forcing a recycle at gunpoint.

Do you have 2.4ghz and 5ghz on your wireless router. If so, make sure all devices are on the same frequency.
