    Hi -

    My cell phone's screen went black. The phone is still working becasue I hear it ring etc. How can I transfer all my data to my new cell phone? I plugged the old phone into my PC and copied every file...but what to do now?

    Thank you,

    Nick

    Welcome to Android Central! The problem is that not all of the data is in discrete files that you can copy over easily. For example, if you have contacts that are only saved locally to the Phone account (as opposed to your Google account, which syncs automatically to the cloud, and which you should always use to avoid this problem), you won't be able to access them, since they're in an SQLite database in a protected system directory.
