To begin, you will need to download and install the Smart Switch software to transfer items directly from a PC or Mac to your new Galaxy device. Please click on one of the links below depending on whether you have a Windows computer or an Apple computer.



When you have downloaded and installed the software you will need to connect your phone to the computer using the microUSB card that came with your phone, Follow the on screen instructions in the software to backup your data.

For your convenience I have attached a link to the user manual from At&T for this phone. It may be of help to you in the future.
