Hello Experts

I have recently purchased Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE 4G (i9305), prior of using Samsung galaxy I was using iPhone4S (doesn't have any encrypted data).

I want to transfer all my contacts, SMSs, MMSs to my new phone.

I am using windows 7 64-bit

I tried to follow the procedure below :

How to transfer contacts from iPhone 4 to Samsung Galaxy S3

1: Before starting take a backup of all of your data and save on your system.
2: Start Samsung Kies-> Connect Your SGS 3 ,plus stay connected to your tab as well.
3: Goto Main page -> Select (basic summary) something similar to this.
4: At the base of your screen you can see : Transfer your BackUp data from Non-Samsung Device
5: You also have to select iphone 4 backup
6: Select the files you need to transfer to SGS3
7: Transfer
The error message that I am getting is
Cannot read the backup file information. Please select a valid backup file.

Check that iTunes is not encrypting the backup.

Also in that link you posted it says you need to deselect 'Memos' as Kies cannot transfer these from iPhones, have you tried that?

I don't know a lot about Kies, when I started to use it, it ended up being worse than iTunes. Is it possible to extract everything from your iPhone backup and then dump it onto the phone, and then from the phone import everything to where it should be?

I use easy phone sync, it's an app and software for your pc.

It copied all my contacts probably thousands of texts and more.

Kies is rubbish mate

Why don't you just use the apple backup file and then through Kies 3 just restore using the apple file?
