Data Migration Guide:

SmartIO’s intuitive and clever design makes it extremely easy for you to transfer Contacts, Pictures and Videos. How would you do that? Let’s go over this step by step.

Step 1: Download & Launch App

SmartIO is available on Apple’s App Store, Google Play, Windows Phone Store and BlackBerry World. You can download the application for free on both of your phones. After download, you need to launch SmartIO on both devices.

Step 2: Device Type Selection

After launching the application on both devices, choose sender and receiver device.

Step 3: Login Process

On the phone that is going to receive the data (usually the new phone), you will have to make an in-app purchase to unlock the functionality. Before you make the purchase, you will be clearly presented with all the supported content types that can be transferred between your old and the new phone. Buying the in-app product will allow you a one-time transfer from old to new phone. If you want to consolidate data from a number of old phones to the new one then you will have to make additional in-app purchases.

Step 4: Scan the QR Code

In order to connect both devices, you need to scan the QR code. On the sender device, a camera viewfinder will appear and through it, you can scan the QR code appearing on the receiver device. Once the sender device detects the QR code, the receiver device has to accept the connection request.

Step 5:Select Content Types

On Sender, select the types of content that you want to transfer.  The app will automatically check whether the receiver has enough space for receiving the selected data or not. Once the selection is final, press “Start”. You can select the content type from the list of Contacts, Pictures and Videos etc you want to clone. Afterwards, wait until all content is transferred.

Step 6:Transfer Progress

Both devices can see the progress and status of transfer; whereas the sender device can also 'Skip’, “Pause” and Disconnect” the transfer session.

Step 7:Transfer Completion

There you go. That is all you need to do. Clean & simple content transfer! A pop-up will appear on the receiver device showing transfer completion and on the sender phone, a tick mark against each content type selected shows. No annoying ads, no gimmicks and no guessing games. Pick up all your old phones collecting dust in your drawers and start transferring data to the new phone. For your convenience, there are also some  SmarIO video tutorials available. Have fun with your new smartphone!
