    hey i'm getting an S8 tomorrow and I want to know a few things

    1. will I need to format my sd card when I switch phones kinda don't want to I still have a bunch of pictures I took on my lumia 950 and don't want to copy em over but if I have to because android uses SD cards differently I guess i'd have to

    2. anybody used groove music on android I keep getting conflicting sources that it sucks like I can't store songs on an sd card and it's slow and other things and I want to know if I should just switch back to Spotify(don't really want to because the UI is ugly to me but if I must so be it)

    3. anybody know if it's possible to recover WhatsApp messages from windows to android I know I guess I could use the WhatsApp file it uses when it backs it up but I want to know if that works across platforms or it'll just all be gone

    4. anybody know a good app to move text messages and call history from windows mobile to android or if there's any built in ways of doing it

    thanks in advance if you can help I think this is pretty much all I've been wondering about before I get the phone.

    1) you shouldn't
    2) not sure.
    3) not sure
    4) SMS Backup & restore (provided that it works on Windows. It should)

    Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum.
    1. Not sure, but there are only a couple ways to format a microSD so I'd try it first. But, see no. 4 .
    2. Can't help here, I use Poweramp.
    3. Don't use Whatsapp
    4. You will receive a port dongle with your S8 that is used to make a cable transfer from your old phone to the S8. I am not sure if a Lumia is compatible, you might search the forum, or Samsung, for "smartswitch" and see what turns up. It did a great job on my S7 to S8 and also backed up the SD card in the process.
