Switch from Iphone to Galaxy Notes??

I'm currently a Iphone user.

If I get a Iphone 4S or 5, I can easily transfer everything from Outlook to Iphone 4S. But as for Galaxy note, I wonder whether can the data be easily transferred to Galaxy Note via Outlook or you need special tools, and whether the transferred is 100% complete.

A part from the bigger screen, why do you prefer Galaxy Notes over Iphone?

In the first place, do you think it's just a screen size that makes people move from iOS to Android?

Best way to transfer is to sync ur Outlook to Google. Everything else from Google to phone is automated.

The main reason why I switched from iPhone 4 to galaxy note is really the size . After migrating then I realised I have missed out too much previously. Now I find Android more superior although not as fast as ios. Only Singapore flooded with iPhones and their hardcore fans

The iOS gui appears to be fast because there's no true multitasking..more priority is given to the gui more than anything else.

Everyday, it seems there will be such a thread being generated.

With google phone, there is nothing to transfer. Android users can afford to lose their phone with no loss to contacts or sms.

Yeah loh, I guessed most Iphone users are very tempted to transfer to android due to a larger screen............................

Why there wasn't any thread on Android to IOS ?

But Android is for people who wanted to explore more & the good thing is it more flexible. Music/video transferred doesn't need any third party software........................

I wanted to test and transfer the contacts from Iphone to Galaxy Note but have a issue.

I notice that everytime I do a direct Google Sync, my Iphone contacts will show as double or triple? is there a limitation to Google Sync?

You are not wrong. Its part of the setup wizard installed on HTC android models.

Use orbicontacts to transfer bro.

After u setup yr google sync, there is a new contact group created. Then use orbicontacts to copy from iphone to google sync group. Check yr gmail to ensure all is sync. After that, just use orbicontacts to delete the iphone group contacts.
