kjb481,

Congratulations on the new phone! Transferring your precious moments is important. I'll be happy to help. There are several ways you can move your pictures, videos, contacts and other content to a new device. This link has great options, check it out: http://vz.to/2gURion.

Just curious, how did you transfer your email and contacts? How did you back up your Samsung Galaxy S5?

Does the Smart Switch transfer that stuff?

We don't want you missing any of your pictures, kjb481. A great way to move your photos is with Verizon Cloud. Did you do this backup with the S5? Click here to log in online to see if any items were saved: http://spr.ly/65868sO08.

Thanks for the update. I will file that tidbit away since I rarely touch a Samsung phone.
