Galaxy S7 Edge Transferring Contacts

JUMP TO SOLUTION

So I had a SGS7 edge since day one I recently broke it and the lid so the screen doesn't work. I just ended up buying another edge instead of having someone repair it for 400. But is there a way to use smart switch or bypass it because I need to click a button on the original phone to say to transfer or is there another way? Thanks you.

Setting up the new phone you should get options to restore the phone from backups. Problem is Contacts are not backed up normally.
Basically if you saved your contacts to the phone storage, you have 2 backup options : Samsung Cloud (if you had it on your phone) or Smartswitch.
You many have saved your contacts to Google or Samsung account. In that case by logging into the new phone, you will see those contacts.

If Smart Switch is asking you to unlock the broken screen phone then there is no way. Unless you can login to findmyphone site and unlock the phone from there.
