I swapped the sim card and my SD card over and that seems to take care of activating the phone itself. I tried using the Samsung Galaxy to Galaxy app to transfer some of the stuff I want but that didn't do it. Most of my stuff like contacts and calendars is all sync'd with google so it's easy. What I want to transfer is the wifi passwords, ring tones and old versions of apps that I don't want to update to the latest version. I think the google backup and restore can help me here but I don't know where to tell it to restore what is backed up for my S3 to my Note3. Google seems to think these are 2 different phones with different backup sets. Any thoughts?
