I don't and have never text, not 1 time. My wife however? It's seems to be her favorite way of communicating. I will ask her how she transferred hers from her older Tracfone. Her Tracfone is her secondary phone.

 

She left for a Pet Sitting Job Friday, and will not be back home until next week, on Sunday or Monday. Talk with her on the phone, but talking about these electronic things, doesn't translate too well that way.  It's on of those "show me, not tell me" type of things.

 

If I can learn something that way and figure out how to explain it to you, I will certainly give it a shot. Sorry, best I can do right now!

Our phones are the

 

Samsung Ao2 Model.

This is what you do:

 

1. Download Transfer Wizard from the Google Store to both phones. They must both be connected to the same wifi.

 

2. Follow the directions. Not hard at all.

 

3. Be patient while your texts, contacts, photos, etc. ALL get transferred over. Maybe 10 minutes, depending on how much you've got.

 

4. Turn off your old phone. You're done.

 

Good luck!

@hckynutjohn  Thanks, but I thought you bought the moto g stylus XT2115dl from hsn a couple of months ago for about $80.  

That's what we got.  We are just now activating them.  

Not a big deal about the texts.  Just a silly question.

@PickyPicky3 I think my husband used a transfer program. It did everything but texts. Thanks...

On my phone texts just move over when I activate it and log into Google. I got a new Moto G Stylus a few months ago and I have texts dating back to 2019 on it. I didn't use a transfer program or do anything but activate it and log into Google and told Google to move everything.
