Last Update date : 2017.09.14

Smart Switch

Use Smart Switch to transfer contacts, photos, and other content from your old phone. Just open Smart Switch and follow the in-app prompts to transfer whatever you'd like. Connect wirelessly, or using the USB connector (included), to copy content quickly and easily from your old phone.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Transfer Data Using Smart Switch

Transfer data 1

After downloading Smart Switch, transferring content is surprisingly easy. Just open Smart Switch, select WIRELESS, follow the on-screen prompts, and then select the content you want to transfer.

Transfer Data Using the USB Connector

Note: The USB option must be set to Media device (MTP) on the other device. Transferring content with a USB cable may increase battery consumption. Make sure your battery is fully charged.

Transfer data 2

Using the USB connector, connect your Galaxy Note8 to your old phone using the included USB connector and the cable from your old phone. Select the items you want to transfer to your new phone to enjoy all your favorite apps, music, and contacts without skipping a beat.
