Discussion Summary

Explorer Geri shares her experience of ruining her smartphone and then dreading 'starting all over' with a new one. Instead, she put her sim card into her husband's phone and took it so he was the one who upgraded. The group discusses moving contacts, photos and other files relatively painlessly from the old phone to a new one using a cloud based utility.
