    Hi All.
    I just upgraded to the new iPhone and I want to TRANSFER my profile from the old iPhone to the new one. I also want to give my old iPhone to a friend but I don't want him to reinstall grinder and see my profile.

    Is there a way to permanently transfer my profile from the old iPhone to the new one making it unaccessible from the old iPhone?

    The Grinder knowledge base site says to use the Phone backup/restore and then to use a "Transfer" feature when prompted, but I never got prompted and I can't find this so-called "Transfer" feature.

    Can anyone please help?
    Thanks,
    -Luca, NYC.

    Have you used the 'sync profile' feature?

    Hi Madison.
    Grindr knowledge base site said explicitly not to use the "sync profile" from the old phone to the new one, if I wanted to give away the old phone.
    Do you think that the so-called "transfer" feature prompt is hidden somewhere in the "sync profile" steps? I didn't dare use the "sync profile" feature because the Grindr site told me so. Maybe I should?

    I reckon a backup of the old phone and then restore it on the new phone would work

    and then maybe reset the old phone completely as to wipe out all data

    I did a full backup/restore from the old phone to the new one, but it appears as if the new phone has a new account identity (even though it preserved my old pictures and messages). I'm a little confused about that.

    OK guys, you're both funny, but I suspect that neither one of you is depicted in your avatar photo :)

    Now back to my original question. ;-)

    No, but it's apparently the Grindr help desk.

    We are the 5th google result for GRINDR HELP, and the first not on grindr.com itself.

    Honestly, what has moopy come to?

    I've only noticed what a CRACKING PAIR OF TITS VoR has since she changed her profile pic.

    I don't get that. If it's preserved your account then it has been moved over. When I've done a full restore on my current phone Grindr loads as if nothing has ever happened.

    Why not try a restore without back-up on your old phone and see if Grindr starts fresh or not.

    Maybe download Grindr X on the same old phone and then sync your new grindr x profile over you grindr one?

    I have to say pop lolly, I'm not so keen on your hair since you stopped straightening it. Also, I think you should try some blusher or something - are you anaemic?

    Thank you all for the help and entertainment ;-)
    I finally got an answer from Grindr's tech support, and even though their knowledge base website mentions a "transfer" profile feature, it turns out they don't have one. Losers.
    Needless to day I've ditched them for Scruff ;-)
    Below is the reply I received. Thanks and have fun!
