I want Google to send me my pictures and contacts and my text to my new phone

We are not google. :)

NOTE: This will only work if you synced the old device to the google account and uploaded the files and data. If they are still on the old phone only, then none of this will work. You would need to get it all off the old phone.

To get your contacts you need to be logged into the same google account on the new phone that you were on your old phone. Then just go into your contacts and choose to get the ones you have on the google site.

For photos...

1. Open the "Google Photos" app.
2. Tap the photo you want to save to your phone.
3. Now tap the "Options" menu.
4. And finally tap "Restore".
5. Repeat for each image.

Or, to get them all at once...

1. Log into the google account associated with the app.
2. Download all the images to an empty folder on your computer.
3. Connect the phone to the computer via USB cord.
4. Copy the images over to the phone or sd card.
 
MERGED QUESTION
Question from edwardgoodman42 : "I want Google to send me my pictures and contacts and my text to my new phone"





Well, if you synced and uploaded the contacts and photos to google you should then be able to get them back. However if you didn't do that, or it didn't work, then there will be no way to get the data from there. You also must have the same google account on the new phone as on the old one. Phone number really doesn't matter.

To get contacts, as long as the new phone is accessing the same google account, you should be able to go into the contacts app and choose to get them from google.

In regard to photos...

1. Open the "Google Photos" app.
2. Tap the photo you want to save to your phone.
3. Now tap the "Options" menu.
4. And finally tap "Restore".
5. Repeat for each image.

Or, to get them all at once...

1. Log into the google account associated with the app.
2. Download all the images to an empty folder on your computer.
3. Connect the phone to the computer via USB cord.
4. Copy the images over to the phone or sd card.
