Can I restore BIP44 accounts created with other wallets?

AT -

Yes, as long as the account was also created using a BIP39 word list.

When you start a fresh install of the app, you get the option to restore a backup. You can choose between word list lengths of 12, 18, or 24 words, and also supply an optional password in accordance with BIP44.

This allows you to restore all HD accounts generated by other wallets compatible with BIP44 and BIP39. For instance, this allows you to import your TREZOR word list in case your device was lost or damaged so you can quickly move your funds to safety.

    I just opened my account yesterday. I did use the 12 word back up. However I had phone issues and I don't know how to open my account using my new phone.
