Transferring personal data from your old phone to a new one used to be a cumbersome ordeal. These days, it's a much simpler process. On Android phones, just having a Google account takes care of your contacts, bookmarks, apps, and more.
However, it won't help you copy old SMS/MMS messages, pictures, music, and other files. For Samsung users, there's an easy way to get those files over to your new Galaxy device. Mobiletrans is the best option for Samsung users to transfer messages between Samsung devices.
There is absolutely no reason why you should consider pictures or text messages on a phone to be lost simply because you moved onto a new one. Furthermore, there is no reason why you should think that you cannot transfer the data simply because you decided to move from Samsung A3/A5/A7 to Samsung S8 and they use different operating systems. Mobile Transfer is an application that will take care of all of that for you. This advanced program let's you transfer contacts, SMS, pictures, music, movies, videos and more from an old smartphone to new one. You just have to worry about how you are going to pay for your new phone, let MobileTrans worry about transferring your data files.
Step 1. Connect your two devices to the computer
Running Wondershare MobileTrans on your computer, and click on "Phone to Phone Transfer". Then use USB cables to connect your Samsung phones and PC. Please make sure that you have enabled USB debugging on your Samsung phone in connection. You can see the moving path of the data and you can use the "Flip" button to exchange their position.
Step 2. Choose the file and start to transfer
You can see the data types that can be transferred in the middle of the screen, such as contacts, messages, videos and so on. Select the data you want. If you only want to transfer Messages, you just need to select Messages. Then click on "Start Transfer" to begin the process.
Step 3. Successful transfer
Wait patiently for a few minutes, the data will be transferred successfully. Remember not to disconnect your phones during the transfer process.
Note: You can check the "Clear Data before Copy" box if you want to erase data on the destination phone before copying the new data.
