The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Transfer Data Using Smart Switch

Transfer Data Using the USB Connector

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

  1. Connect your Galaxy Note5 to your old phone using the included USB connector and the cable from your old phone.

  2. Select the items you want to transfer to your Galaxy Note5.

  3. Enjoy all your favorite apps, music, contacts, and more without skipping a beat.
