    Hello --
    Is 'Samsung Smart Switch' software downloaded to PC a decent method?
    Or is (ie- Google Cloud) a better/safer method?
    Need to backup S7A by tomorrow, hopefully. Thanks very much for any help!

    I personally prefer Samsung Smart Switch. The mobile version is easy for transfer, and the PC version is handy for backup/restore(transfer).

    Thank you Thacy. I dl'd the PC ver last night, and it seemed to backup (the S7A i'm going to return) fine. Or at least it says it did. So, I'm hoping it'll restore everything it claims to have backed-up -- onto the new unlocked S7A -- and that the new one being unlocked doesn't cause any issues.

    Which has made me think of a new (probably pretty dumb) question/topic for a new thread

    It might be too late, but Smart Switch may not be able to restore all apps data from one phone to another. However, both of your phone are S7A, so it is hard to say. Hope it works perfectly for you.
    AFAIK, Helium is good for app backup and restore.

    Thank you so much Thacy! Sorry for late reply (pls see my last post on "Initial boot & setup of unlocked S7A..." thread). Notebook computer motherboard cooked last Thurs 23rd, so been trying to shop for new notebook whilst messing with backing-up, returning and setting-up 2nd S7A, etc.
    Will check-out Helium, and thanks again!
