    Default Smartswitch not working

    Hi all, I picked up my new note 3 yesterday but have not been able to get smart switch to work. It just gets stuck at a spinning wheel screen for ages. It finds my iphone back up ok but then seems to hang right before you select what data to switch. Any one else had this?

    May I ask what y'all used to backup your iPhone? ITunes, icloud, or a different program? I'm also having a hard time switching all my stuff from my iPhone but really it's because I don't know the best way to backup TIA!

    Smart Switch is just slow. I thought it crashed on me too when I was trying to move literally thousands of text messages over.. but it eventually happened

    Did it take hours? I have had mine connected for over 2 hours and it hasn't gotten by the messages part. Contacts are ticked but messages are stuck at 100% and calendar/memos say "loading". Overall, 28% progress.

    My understanding of Smart Switch, or whatever it's called, when I opened my Note 3 in December and hoped to migrate stuff from my Galaxy S2, was that it would only work with other Galaxy's on JB above 4.1.2. That's what my S2 was on and didn't make the cut. Neither would a Note 2 I think until very recently.
    I can't think it would deign to even acknowledge an iPhone then.

    I was a little annoyed at the time.
    I also had to upgrade to Kies 3 which would not accept the S2 I still have.
    Smart switch virtually pointless then unless you were coming from an S4 or S3, or unless it helps add a Samsung tablet.

    Talk about keeping it in the family.
    Silly Samsung!

    How long did this take? I have gone in and only trying to transfer my texts and on the device sending it says complete. On the device receiving says 100% and "saving" but the "done" button and the bottom will not activate?

    S4 to s4

    If you just want to transfer texts, I would recommend one of two sms apps. I use "SMS Backup +" which also puts your text history on a Gmail inbox folder on the full website, and will restore to another device with your account (also call logs).

    SMS Backup and Restore is more popular and recommended here on Android Central, but I haven't used it.

    Hi, I switched to smart switch from kies3 but it says a problem has been detected. Does not elaborate. I tried to reinstall kies3 and update my schedule but same thing. All I want it to update my schedule from my Samsung 3 to Outlook....does anyone know anything that will work with accuracy?

    I am stuck backing up from S4 to laptop at 36% complete. HOW LONG does it normally take with Smart Switch? Stuck at "Call Logs".
    Thanks.
