If you are using apps listed above, you need to use the "Backup and Restore" feature to export data from old phone to SD card and then import data from SD card to new phone.

To backup all lists, click on "Menu"->"Backup and Restore"->"Backup". Then click on "Backup" to use the default folder or "Select Folder" to choose different location.

You can then put the SD card in new phone or copy the whole folder to the new SD card in the new phone.

To restore all lists, click on "Menu"->"Backup and Restore"->"Restore". It will open default backup location. you can then navigate to your backup location and click on "Restore".

Chore Checklist (1.0.0-2.3.6), Packing List (1.0.0-3.3.5), My Party Planner (1.0.0-1.2.1), Grocery Helper

Our lists are saved on SD card under application name folder. For example, the lists in Packing List app are saved under \sdcard\packinglist\ folder, lists in Chore Checklist are saved under \sdcard\chorechecklist\ folder and so on.

If you are going to use the same SD card for your new phone, you don't have to do anything. It should automatically load them in after you install the app on your new phone. Be aware some new devices may have more than one external storage. So it may create the application folder on a different SD card. If that happens, just copy the folder from old SD card to the new SD card.

If you are not going to use the same SD card, you need to copy the whole folder from your old device to desktop. Then copy them onto the SD card on your new phone. Please check your phone's user guide for how to transfer files between SD card and desktop.
