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.

Transfer Data Using Smart Switch

  1. Navigate to the Smart Switch app.

  2. Follow the prompts and select the content to transfer.

Transfer Data Using the USB Connector

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.

  1. Connect your Galaxy S8 Active 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 new phone.

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