I cannot backup Android/Brave BAT and need to switch to new phone urgently

I have a significant number of BAT which I don’t wish to lose, on my Android browser. I have to send my old Android phone on which they are located (which is not and cannot be rooted) back for trade-in and I need a way to preserve my BAT.

I cannot verify with Uphold because my passport is expired and the new one is weeks away from arriving, so that’s just not an option (confirmed by Uphold support).

I have tried creating a sync chain, which doesn’t do anything here. Gemini doesn’t seem to be available yet for Android.

Can someone please assist with this? I saw a topic mentioning that Brave staff were able to do something, given Reward internals data but the member I contacted has not responded for several weeks.

Brave 1.31.88 on Android 9

@Mattches
I have the similar issue. I have got a new phone and would like to move my BATs from my old one. I don’t have neither an uphold account not Gemini. Additionally both of them are not available in Germany as far as I got that. Is there a way to sync or move the BATs between both Android phones? Any help is appreciated!

Best regards
Niko
