Maybe you’re about to buy a smartphone for the first time. No wonder, smartphones are designed to make our everyday task easy and convenient. But before buying, you should ask yourself if you are ready to use your smartphone. If you are using a legacy Nokia phone, it will be a totally different experience when you switch to a smartphone, say Samsung Galaxy S3. Here are checklists to determine if you are “ready to use your smartphone”.
Smart phones are usually touch phones. Only a few use the QUERTY keyboard. If you are buying for the first time, you must switch from the keyboard to the touch panel. It’s a different feeling and some of us may need time to practice.
While smartphones can work on their own, they have a backup system that is usually done with the computer. If you’re not comfortable, it’s okay to go to a computer store and synchronize your phone there. However, using a public computer can be dangerous for you. The best thing is to have a personal device so that you do not end up sharing your personal data with a third party.
Knowledge about “The cloud”
You may have heard this before. People are talking about the cloud. What is that cloud anyway? In simple words, it is a mechanism where your information is stored in a common storage and all the users of the cloud use it. This allows your information to be accessible at any time and in any place without the need for USB and any other personal storage.
The contact list is not stored on the SIM card
Speaking of the cloud, one of the information that is usually entered in the cloud is the list of contacts. If you are using a Nokia phone and have to transfer contacts from Nokia, you can enter the cloud and make the transfer; but some fear taking their information in the cloud.
Since the transfer of important data, such as contact lists, always has a maximum priority, you must know the basics. It can also be done manually; Copy each contact, read it from your previous phone and write it on your new phone. It is possible if you have less than 20-30 contacts. Where contacts vary in numbers greater than one hundred, the manual transfer is extremely tedious and discouraging.
In such cases, you can take the help of the software. You should choose the right software that is easy to use. With the availability of many applications, you need to take some time to choose the right software. Here are some points to consider:
Each developer is committed to simplifying the transfer task. But the only way you can identify yourself is to review your comments. Whether you buy from the Android Play Store or from the open market, you need to read some reviews to find the level of satisfaction of other buyers.
If possible, you should choose an application with ease to use the interface and should act as a plug and play application. No more intricate procedures that are overwhelming.
If you can get stuck during the transfer, you should be able to contact the developer. A good provider will also have a good backup system and can help you recover lost details.
After buying the application, here are the steps you should take:
Download / Install the program
Attach the old mobile to the computer using a data cable.
Copy contacts on your computer.
Attach a new smartphone to the computer.
