I've had my first smart phone, Samsung 5, since Nov. 2014 and recently bought a Samsung 10, but it's just been sitting around, because I'm so nervous to switch everything over. I'm worried that once I turn on my Samsung 10 and my service immediately begins on that phone (as I was told my the Verizon rep where I bought the phone), that I will no longer be able to access anything on the old phone. I've backed up the phone, via Smart Switch, but still nervous, because there was an error backing up Contacts, Call Log, Clock, Home Screen. I have an memory card which has the photos. But I have some voice mail messages on the old phone from my mom, who has since passed, that I would love to keep, etc.
Any thoughts about what happens to what I have on my old phone, once I turn on my new phone and switch service to that one?
