    Current Procedure for Transferring to New Device

    Hi All:

    I am getting ready to get a new phone. I'll be upgrading my dinosaur iPhone 6 plus to an iPhone XR in the next week or so. I was hoping someone can tell me what is the current procedure for transferring DS from my old phone to the new one.

    Second question; I also play Frozen Frenzy Mania - will this game automatically transfer over after I've transferred DS?

    Thanks in advance

    Here are the steps to transfer your game to a new device:

    1. Note down the ID and password for the account you want to use. You can find your ID and set/change your password in the HELP/FAQ.
    2. Click on the blue "S8" icon in the top right corner. Here is a screenshot from Restaurant Story 2. Works the same for Dragon.
    3. Select "Login to Another Account" and enter the ID and password for the account you would like to login to
    4. You should now be done. This will restore all of your other games which use the login feature.


    This should also work for Frozen Frenzy Mania!

    I use Android so I can't tell you about transferring between iPhones. But if you have passwords on your islands you can switch back and forth between any islands so if you create a new island on your new phone and set it up with a password, you can then switch to your old island...as long as you also put a password on that island too.

    Tap menu, social, invite..then tap account settings. Next screen allows you to add password to island and other option is to log in to a different account. Enter storm8 I'd and password. You get message it will delete all the games on the device but since they're all on S8 server, you can continue.. hope that helps.

    You will have to check frozen mania to see if it has the switching option on it because not all games do. If it doesn't, I can't suggest anything to do with that, sorry. But if you're logged into your original island in Ds and then go to mania...it MAY go to the same I'd in mania but that's just a guess from me.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for all of the info and help

    Just to be crystal clear; on my new phone I download the DS app. Open it up and click the S8 icon, then use my current username & password and presto! My current DS game will be on my new device. Do I have that correct?

    Yes, that is correct. You might need to finish the game tutorial first but it should be quick. Game will still be on the old device as well.

    Word of warning, my XR crashed Dragon Story only being 3 months old 2 plus years ago, so far my 12 plus has yet to crash after 5 months touch wood!
    Good luck with your new phone, that is if you have enough virgin land to grow your game to place new isles!

    Thanks for the heads up random59

    Virgin land?? My island is a straight up hussy, lol. I'm hanging on by my finger nails in order to keep playing by selling off resource habs, loading up the Stable and even selling off habs that I can buy AGAIN for low cost gold
