How Does Straight Talk Transfer Wizard Work?
The Straight Talk transfer wizard is an app that allows you to transfer contacts and files from one Straight Talk phone to another. The transfer wizard transfers your files directly via a wireless network.
It doesn’t save copies of your files on the cloud or any other platform like other transfer tools. Also, the transfer wizard transfers files and does not move files from the old phone to a new phone. This means that after the transfer, copies of your files will remain in your old phone.
Another good thing about the Straight Talk transfer wizard is that it works very fast. You can transfer thousands of pictures, videos, and contacts in minutes.
