Whenever I move my SIM card from one phone to another I always seem to forget to save something and therefore I lose bits of information, which I would have liked to keep. I figured that there must others who have done the same thing, so I’ve created a list of things to keep in mind when switching phones. I hope this will help you avoid kicking yourself before you forgot to transfer, share or backup your content.

  • WhatsApp – you may have chats or photos on Whatsapp which you need to reply to or want to keep for sentimental reasons
    • You can email the conversation to yourself
    • You can back up and restore your chats
    • You can take screenshots and save them
  • Texts – same as above
    • Some apps allow you to share the thread via email
    • You can take screenshots and save them if they’re not too long
    • You can use an app like SMS Backup to same them to an email account
  • Alarms – this is worth doing if you have reoccurring ones, which you many not remember when you are faced with a ‘blank’ phone
  • Task apps
    • I use a task app to enhance the function in Google Calendar – it allows me to set times and repeat scheduled tasks – the recurrences and reminders needed to be added again on the app I use, so it would have been helpful to know when I scheduled them for to avoid having to think about it all over again!
  • Photos – you can back these up to Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or something else
  • Passwords – it’s  worth finding a way to set passwords so that when you’re switching phones or using a different computer/laptop, you’re not stuck because they were saved on the regular machine that you use
  • Downloads – you may have saved the odd photo or opened an attachment which was downloaded and forgotten
  • Music on device – it’s worth saving this to Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or something else

Can you think of anything that I’ve missed off the list?

Recently, I’ve started looking into which drinks are suitable for vegetarians and vegans again. I approached various companies and asked them to tell me, which drinks contain animal derivatives in the ingredients. However, I also asked them to share which ones use animal products in the process of making these drinks.

Why is there a need to ask about the ingredients and the process?

Unlike ingredients; processes don’t have to be declared! An example of this is, fruit juices being clarified using gelatine! The companies doing this, don’t have to tell us! However, I was chuffed with Britvic. They were quick to respond and they were transparent about both, the ingredients used and the processes too. Below you’ll find a screenshot of the drinks that are NOT suitable for vegetarians. This is followed by a list of drinks that are NOT suitable for vegans.
