Thank you for reaching out to us, buck34. It is important to us that we assist in transferring all of your photos to the brand new phone and I'd be happy to help.
What steps have you taken to transfer over the photos so far? The first step would be to assure that everything is backed up on the S4 and at that point activate the new device. Please provide a few additional details and we will be ready to continue working on this for you.
