    This is frustrating. I am trying to transfer my text messages from my S4 to my Note 4 and I have not been able to do it. I went to the Verizon store and they said they could do it but after 15 minutes they said I have too many texts and they could do not do it. I tried to use SMS Backup+ but it does not seem to work either. I can back them up from my S4 but when I restore them to the Note 4 it gives the date time stamp of when they were restored not when they were originally sent. Also, all the messages are blank. Are there any other good options to try?

    I just had the problem also. I used Kies 3 to backup my messages on my S5 and then restored the message files to my Note 4.

    Did you try the Samsung Smart Switch app? Worked great from my M8 to the Note 4. 4000+ messages.

    The Verizon cloud app is also handy for this

    Samsung phones have a cloud backup and restore feature built in, which I've used more than once. Make sure you perform a recent backup, then restore to your new phone. Works like a charm.

    Samsung smart switch is really just a new version of an old app from an external developer called my backup pro.

    Samsung smart switch works like a charm. All my messages and call logs came over. You can also bring your apps over but you still have to download and install them manually.

    So I tried the smart switch app to transfer stuff from my note 3 to note 4. The pictures came over fine. However the apps is what I'm mainly concerned about. I wanted to transfer the app settings and save games over but all it did was create a list of apps I need to download on the new phone. Even after downloading the app and doing the smart switch transfer none of the settings and preferences were carried over to the new phone. So what exactly is the point of transferring the apps over?
