Let's get started.

Transfer works for iOS 8.0 or higher and Android 5.0 or higher. All you need is your old phone's charging cable, along with the Quick Switch Adapter and SIM ejection tool that came with your Google Pixel.

Before you start, make sure both phones are charged to at least 50%

Change the SIM card.

  1. Remove the SIM card from your old phone.

  2. Using the SIM ejection tool included in the box, open the SIM tray on your Google Pixel.

  3. Insert your SIM card and connect to Wi-Fi. Once inserted, it may take a few seconds to activate. If you haven't done so already, turn on your Google Pixel. Find an available Wi-Fi network and join it.
