Is there a way to transfer EVERYTHING from a Galaxy S3 to the Galaxy Note 2?General

    I should be receiving my Note 2 tomorrow and I was wondering if there is any way to transfer every thing over to the Note 2 from my S3.

    I have several android based tablets for my family to use and thus I have a TON of apps that appear in my app list on the store so every time I upgrade I have to go thru this huge list looking for the apps I use (15-20) then have to manually install and agree to all that BS. I know the Samsung phones have the transfer ability between their phones but didn't know if that would help my situation since it is not just pictures I am wanting to move.

    I was just looking for a more efficient method of moving things from one phone to the other.

    Thanks in advance,

    I've yet to find anything...but that doesn't mean there is not a way. I'm interested to hear other options as well.

    I think Kies will transfer most, if not all, of your media from one phone to another. I hate Kies but I've not found a simple, all-in-one, solution for this. I came from an iPhone to Note 2 so I had to use 2-3 different programs to transfer everything over. I would imagine Samsung would have something less PITA to do this. My guess is they'll probably tell you to use Kies.

    I use my backup pro. Works great!

    Backup pro doesn't require root?

    I really don't want to root this, I use Square allot.

    No root is NOT required. Love this app and the developer is good about responding.

    wish they'd let you move apps to SD so much easier.

    Oddly and i am not sure how this works, when I moved my SIM into the Note 2 it went through the registration process then downloaded exactly what was on my S3 with no promoting from me. I was amazed and very happy it was so easy.

    However I have the S3 to my wife and transferring her apps from the Stratosphere.... not so easy. ;)

    So if I wanted to sell my S3 do I just swap the SIM card from the note2 I just bought in order to keep all of my stuff?

    SIM doesn't have anything to do with it.

    It's linked to your Google account and/or Samsung Account (if you use that). So whatever you synced with Google/Samsung will transfer/restore to the new device.

    Just make sure you wipe the device before selling it. ;)
