For example my HTC HD2 How to switch between apps? was closed and not migrated. I think it was a right choice:

Questions on Super User are expected to generally relate to computer software or computer hardware in some way, within the scope defined in the faq.

In the FAQ it says that smartphones do not use computer software or computer hardware and that is ok, but why this question was not migrated to another SE site?

What can I do to migrate it? (It does have a one very good comment.) Or should I forget about it and ask it again on another site?

The exact same question was asked on the android.se android.stackexchange.com/questions/4862/… –  Barry Jan 18 '11 at 14:20

Please click the link to the FAQ in that close message. Also: it's your own responsibility to adhere to the rules; migration is just an additional service. –  Arjan Jan 18 '11 at 14:22
    
Oh yeah: The HD2 isn't an Android device, so it's off-topic for Android as well. –  Al E. Jan 18 '11 at 14:43

What can I do to migrate it?(it does have a one very good comment) or should the poor guy forget about it and ask it again on another site?

You could

  • Drop a comment mentioning it is offtopic & direct him to the relevant Stack Exchange site ( if it exists)
  • Flag it for moderator attention with a request for migrating to relevant Stack Exchange site. ♦ mods can migrate to (any ?) Stack Exchange 2.0 site.

The moderator would have to decide if there was a suitable site, but this is the correct workflow. The target can be any site - including metas - but the moderator may not agree with you. –  ChrisF Jan 18 '11 at 13:52
    
good to know, thx. –  IAdapter Jan 18 '11 at 17:07

Closed questions are migrated when:

  • A sister site exists that considers the questions as on topic
  • The question is detailed enough for a moderator to determine where it belongs

Your question didn't meet the criteria for Super User, which by know you should know. Secondly, you gave no indication in the question of what OS the phone is running, apart from the name of the phone.

Since I couldn't determine if I need to migrate the question, I simply closed it as off topic, until such time as someone flags it for a valid site.

Tip Review the FAQ of every site before posting questions.

Closing it was a good choice. Thanks for keeping things tidy! –  Arjan Jan 18 '11 at 14:23
    
thx for answer, I just remember there was this Gadgets site, but i could not remember name for it. Does putting "windows mobile" on that question would have changed anything? –  IAdapter Jan 18 '11 at 17:06
    
@01 No it would not have changed a thing. It is still off topic for Super User. –  Diago Jan 18 '11 at 17:13

There is no migration path to any smartphone\smart-device related SE site. You could propose one.

There was Gadgets, which failed to take off for various reasons. –  Yi Jiang Jan 18 '11 at 13:46
    
@Yi Jiang: Wait, so we don't have such a SE site? –  Time Traveling Bobby Jan 18 '11 at 13:48
    
Gadgets had too much overlap with Apple and Android, and didn't gained traction, so the team decided to shut it down. –  Yi Jiang Jan 18 '11 at 14:04
    
@Yi Jiang thx, I knew there was some site for this, but I couldn't find it. –  IAdapter Jan 18 '11 at 17:05
