As much as the excitement feels when buying a new phone, there is as much tension when it comes to transferring data from the old phone to the new phone. By the way, there are some simple tricks, with the help of which you can switch the data of the old phone to a new phone without any hassle:

Contacts Transfer

The easy way to transfer contacts is to keep all the contacts in sync with your Google account. Whenever you access the new phone, all the contacts synced to the Google account will be easily transferred to the new phone, but if the contacts are not synced with the Google account then you can transfer them through the SIM card, but only 250 in the SIM Contacts can be saved, so transfers will be the same. For this, open the phone’s contact app> Click on menu> manage> import / export. Some phones also have the option of import/export directly.

In the pop window here, select export to sim card, and then your contacts will be transferred from the phone to the sim card. Now insert the SIM card into the phone.

Memory Card

You can also transfer your media files, audio, and video to a new phone through memory card.

Text Message Transfer

WhatsApp chat

If your WhatsApp data is saved on the external micro SD card in the old Android smartphone, remove it and insert it in the new phone, but if the WhatsApp data is saved on the internal SD card or internal memory, then the SD card or WhatsApp folder is the same as the new phone from the old phone. Transfer to the folder. If you do not know anything about the SD card, then check the specifications of your phone for this. Also keep in mind that during the transfer, transfer all the data or all the files and also do not check that the transfer has taken place. Install WhatsApp on the new phone with the same number.

After transferring the backup of WhatsApp, install WhatsApp on your new phone, but remember that WhatsApp’s phone number on the new smartphone should be the same old one as it was on your old device. When doing the installation, WhatsApp will automatically do a backup search and ask you to restore it. Now click on the restore and save the message history, as soon as the restore completes, your old WhatsApp chat will start appearing on the new smartphone.
