    hi, when u say sounds are u referring to music or ring tones, etc? if its on ur sd card, do u think u can swap out the card and load it onto ur D3? if not, upload those files to a pc then transfer them to ur D3

    I recommend using a file manager that can access the system area of the phone and copy these items to your SD card. I tested this by using OI File Manager. There are many files manager that have the ability to read the system area and copy files from it.

    On the Droid 3:
    1. Stock Ringtones are located in system/media/audio/ringtones
    2. I was not able to locate the wallpapers, but you may be able to.

    Good Luck,
    Bob

    What "things"? The type(s) of things makes a difference. You need to be very specific if you want help with migrating.
