Samsung S21 Unlocked Setup


Novice Member
Hello all, Just bought a new S21 and need to know if I am able to set it up by myself. My old phone is an S8. I would like to transfer everything over from S8 to S21. Can I do this wireless? My charge port on my S8 is broken. I have the Samsung Smart Switch on my S8 and S21. Can someone give me step by step directions on how to do this all? Or a link to some where online that will show me how to do it all. Does the S21 come with a new sim card? My S8 has a sim card installed. Do I need to put the S8 sim card into my S21? Or do I keep both sim cards in both phones and just do the wireless transfer via Samsung Smart Switch? I do need my Google and Samsung account user name and password, correct? Thanks and any help will do. Jeff

Where did you buy the phone from ? Can they set it up for you ?

If not then check YouTube, there are tons of Samsung data migration videos and yes it can be done wirelessly.
