    Move Data from Galaxy S6 to iPhone 6S?

    I have been with S2 for 3 years and the device is too old and performs slowly now. I received an iPhone 6S as a gift from my son. I am quite new to iPhone world. My question is how to transfer contacts, text messages and music from the old S2 to the new iPhone 6S. I am not a tech guy, so the easy solution is preferred. thanks

    You can transfer you contacts via Google. You won't be able to transfer text messages since they are coming from a completely different operating system. As for your music, you can drag and drop them onto your device or put them into iTunes and log into iTunes once you're on your new phone.

    That's because much of the music from iTunes is DRM protected. There isn't much you can do about that. You can try and search the internet to see if there is anyway to convert those songs to mp3 format. Aside from that I'm not all that familiar with iTunes. Sorry.

    Re: Move Data from Galaxy S6 to iPhone 6S?

    Have you heard about Phone to Phone Transfer before? It is an iphone data transfer app which enables iPhone users to move all kinds of data from iPhone to Android and vice versa. With this iphone data transfer tool, iPhone users can easily copy your files from iPhone to Android. Thus, maybe you can try to use Phone to Phone Transfer to migrate your data from the old S2 to the new iPhone 6S.

    Re: Move Data from Galaxy S6 to iPhone 6S?

    Nice share! glad I have found this thread, which really helps me a lot to transfer data from Samsung to iPhone. I have transfer my contacts and photos successfully in this method. Although these two devices run on different operating systems, I found that some Phone Transfer tool can help you transfer text messages successfully. Thanks again.
