Today’s article will be divided into several parts: (1) the data to be determined before changing the phone, (2) which data can be transferred (3) the backup of the old Android/iPhone phone, and then there are two types in the process of changing the phone (4) ) The number remains the same but the new mobile phone is changed, (5) The new number is also changed to a new mobile phone.

Before starting all the actions, please help me to confirm that your LINE version is above 9.2.0. Go to the upper right corner of the LINE homepage “Settings” >> bottom “About LINE” >> “Use version”. Actually, LINE is usually updated If it’s almost over
Confirm 3 items of information before replacement
Regardless of whether your old phone is Android or iPhone, we need to confirm three things before changing: (1) phone number (2) email (3) password, whether the setting is complete, click “Settings” in the upper right corner of the LINE homepage “>>”My Account” you can see these data
The thing to note here is that each groupphone numberande-mail, Can only be set on a LINE account, so don’t lend your phone or email to someone else to bind it!in additionpasswordIt’s actually the password to log in to the computer version of LINE. If you forget it, it’s okay. Just reset it once, but because we need to use this password later, we need torecordOh (draw the key five stars)
What data can be transferred
When LINE is transferred, there are transferable and non-transferable data (as shown in the figure below). “Transferable data” isFollow LINE accountYes, so no matter you cross-system or switch to which mobile phone, these data will be there!
What everyone wants to know most is whether the “chat history” can be kept!What if you areSame system, Such as iPhone to iPhone or Android to Android can be reserved!I will teach you how to back up your chat history, but if you change your Android to iPhone or iPhone to Android, I’m sorry~ Currently it’sUnable to transfer chat history across systemsof
So what is the LINE token in “non-transferable data”? When you buy stickers on your phone.LINE tokens are used, if your new phone and old phone areDifferent systems, Then there are LINE tokens that have not been used up. It is recommended to use them up before transferring them!Otherwise these LINE tokens will disappear
Old Android/iPhone backup
Then we are going to back it up! This action is mainly to back up text records, so if you change from Android to iPhone or iPhone to Android, you can skip this step directly!
If your old phone is Android, go to LINE Settings>>Chat>>Backup and restore chat history, and then bind a Google account below, because it will back up text records to your Google cloud, just confirm the backup time that appears It’s “now” and “file size” is out, even if the backup is complete
If your old phone is an iPhone, go to Settings>>Chat>>Backup chat history, click “Back up now”, the system will back up the text records to iCloud, and make sure that the backup time that appears is “Now” and “File size” is displayed, even if the backup is complete
Then if you have been unsuccessful in the backup, try several methods, reopen LINE or confirm whether iCloud or Google Cloud is running out of space, I myself have failed several times during the backup, and my iCloud space is obviously enough. Later, I reorganized iCloud, made space, and backed up successfully.
The number remains the same but changed to a new phone
Okay, we are finally coming to change planes! This step is suitable for people with “the same number, change to a new phone”, regardless of Android or iPhone, the steps here are the same! So let’s use the iPhone as a demonstration. Before starting the following actions, please remember that your mobile phone must first log in to your iCloud or Google account, so that you can grab a backup of your chat content~
First download LINE on your new mobile phone, select “Log in with phone number” at the beginning, enter our phone number, and wait for the verification code!Then click “This is my account” (also make sure that it is really your account XD), and then enter what I said at the beginning to rememberpassword!Which is the password to log in to the computer version of LINE
Then click “Restore Chat History”, click “OK” and LINE will move your account to the new phone!Then click “Restore chat history by backing up data” and remind again ~ You must have logged in to your iCloud or Google account at this time to restore the chat backup
What if I accidentally click “Continue without restoring chat history”? For iPhone users, please reinstall the App directly and then go through the steps just now! Android users can go to LINE Settings>>Chat>>Backup and Restore Chat>>Restore, so you can import the backup
Then you can change the machine successfully!The order of the chat rooms and the content of the chat rooms are the same as before. The contents of the notebook, photo album, and photos are also in (transferable data), but the background of the chat room is regarded as “non-transferable data”, which needs to be reset.
Changed a new number and a new mobile phone
What if it is a person who has changed a new number + a new mobile phone?The same must go through the previous “Confirm 3 items of data before changing the phone” + “Backup”~ Then first of all, we are inOld phoneAbove, go to LINE Settings>>Privacy Settings>>Open the “Mobile Account” setting, and then the old phone can be placed aside
Pick upnew phoneOpen LINE, click “Log in with phone number”, enterNew phone number(Five stars) and wait for the authentication code
After filling in the authentication code, click “Mobile Account” and then select the login method. At this time, you can choose “Old Mobile Phone Number” or “email”. I will choose “Old Mobile Phone Number” and enterPhone number of old cell phone(Five stars)
Then enter the very important password I mentioned earlier! LINE will find your original account!
After logging in, click “Restore chat history”>>Restore chat history through backup data. Here, you must first make sure that your mobile phone has an iCloud or Google account, and then switch to the same system to keep the chat history~
Okay, the above is the process of LINE backup and replacement! Although it looks complicated, it is actually not difficult~ I have succeeded more than 4-5 times by myself. I hope everyone can follow the steps step by step and change the machine smoothly!
