For the last hour I have tried to find a way to transfer contacts and text messages from my Samsung mobile to my PC. It seems to be impossible and I don't like wasting my time on things which should be simple to do. Can you help me?
In order to transfer your contacts or text messages from your Samsung device to your PC you need to use Samsung PC Suite or Kies. Both Samsung applications are free of charge and easy to use. Since Kies is compatible with a very large number of Samsung devices, I suggest you try it first. Once you launch it, connect your device, click Contacts and follow the on-screen instructions. Also, if your device has the Android operating system, you can try Jihosoft Android SMS Transfer.
Of course you cannot transfer contacts from Samsung to PC, because Android OS can just let you transfer data which are in memory.
However, why not you make a screenshot of these contacts lists,and transfer them to computer.In my view, the method is a way to go.
Otherwise, Google some transfer software to help you.
