    Hi, I just got a new Galaxy S7. All my text messages are still transferring over from my Galaxy S6. How do I stop them, they have been transferring for 4 hours. Any advice, any help, please?

    Thank you,
    A frustrated Galaxy user

    Are you transferring them via Smart Switch? If so, hit cancel. If not, please elaborate.

    Jinxii, yes, I am transferring them via smart switch. I like the fact that all the apps came over, no need for thousands of text messages. Do you have a suggestion?

    Thank you

    Can you tell me what you see on your screen right now? You should have the option to cancel.

    ?? I never keep more than about 10 messages in a Text Thread.....
    I can't imagine trying to scroll backwards that far to try and find something,
    if I want to keep something, I hold down on the SMS message and 'share it via email' to myself and store it on a computer.

    I use chompsms. I just long press and "lock message". That will keep the message even if I delete the thread. LOL.
