Transfer Data from Your Old Phone to Galaxy S8 Active
Use Smart Switch to transfer contacts, photos, and other content from your old phone. You can also use the USB connector (included) to copy content quickly and easily from your old phone without installing the Smart Switch app.
The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Select the items you want to transfer to your new phone.
Enjoy all your favorite apps, music, contacts and more without skipping a beat.
