How do I transfer from Samsung S4 to Samsung Kies 3?

Hello! When I had Samsung S3 phone and Samsung Kies 1, it was easy. Now, there is no button to do it all for me.

First, check if you are still using the same original Samsung S4 cable that comes with the device. Then, you might want to install Kies 2.6 instead, as your device was released before September 2013. There is a newer Smart Switch too. Also, just in case, update your Samsung USB driver from this Web page.

How do I Switch Device from S4 to S4?

I need to switch from S4 to another S4. I tried the switch device app but both phones must be connected at the same time and I can't do that because the replacement phone AT&T sent me is a shell, no battery and I don't have a back up battery.
