    I plan to transfer from my note 20 to the s22 Ultra I have coming tomorrow. I think I know how to use smart switch to do it but, I'll have to remove Sim card from note and install in the s22. Do I need to then, power on the new s22 first and go through usual setup? and then turn on the note 20 and the smart switch on both phones and begin my file transfer? Thanks!

    You should be able to skip the "Insert SIM" screen on the new phone and swap the SIM cards later, after the data transfer is complete. That's what I've always done for my Pixel phones.

    Yeah Smart switch will work without sim .
    I usually have my old device back up through smart switch on pc then go through quick setup and then new device hook up to computer and restore from back up

    Same, I use Smart Switch on the PC.
    I have never had an issue with it.

    It's also nice to have the backups of old devices on your PC in case you need to back & recover something!

    I have a backup in smart switch now, on my pc I guess I should go ahead and make a new one and then I should be able to just restore it to the new phone?
