Make sure both phones are added to the same wireless network wifi, if they are on different networks this wont work. Then you will want to select receive on the new device.
You should then see an option of iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows phone. Simply select which phone you want to Transfer data from.
In this video I select Android. You should then get a pop up on your old device asking if you want to accept the invitation from your new phone. Just tap Accept.
After this you should get a summary of all the data that is ready to be transferred to your new phone.
You can select the check boxes to add or removed anything you don’t need.

Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung

Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung

This video will show you how to do a factory reset when you have Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung. The phone used In this video is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

In this video I will show you how to Unlock Samsung Phone if have Forgotten PIN Passcode or Pattern.
Ok guys so we have all done it, we have just setup a password or pin code on our Samsung device and we can’t remember what it was.

Forgotten PIN Passcode

The unlock method I am about to show you is called factory reset and it will remove the Password Pattern or PIN Code, but the down side is it will also wipe the data on the phone. Remember that a PIN or password is setup to protect the data on the phone in case you lose the phone. So I suggest to try to remember the passcode or pin first.

A tip that can help you remember is, put the phone down for 30 mins and don’t think about it. Come back to the phone and try your Pattern or PIN again. Sometimes your muscle memory will just do the code automatically without thinking about it. Its worked for me before.

Ok the next thing I need to mention is FRP Lock, Factory reset protection.
FRP lock locks your device with the Google account that you used on your phone. So if you dont know your Google account then I suggest trying to remember if first as you will be asked to enter it after we do the factory reset. To find the Google account you can go to settings and accounts.

Wipe data factory reset

Ok lets get started with the Factory reset.

Simultaneously press and hold the power button + volume up button + home key until the Samsung logo appears, then release only the power button. Release the volume up button and home key when the recovery screen appears. From the Android system recovery screen, select wipe data/factory reset.

See my video on Forgotten Passcode on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Transfer data from iPhone to Oppo with iCloud

This video will show you how to Transfer data from iPhone to Oppo. In this video we transfer the iPhone 5S data to a Oppo R11 via iCloud.

This video will work with any iOS device so iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Make sure both your phones are connected to WIFI because we will be using the WIFI connection to upload download the data to iCloud.
Next sign into iCloud with your Apple Id on your iPhone and then move the slider bars to choose what data you want to upload to iCloud. Remember that this data will be the same data that you download to your new phone.

Transfer data from iPhone to Oppo

TIP: Turn off find my iPhone and any passcodes or security features that you might have on your iPhone iOS device. If you have an older version of iOS older than 11.4 you wont have messages available to backup. So just upgrade your iOS version your device.
Tap on iCloud backup, make sure it is turned on. Then tap back up now.

If you want to check what data you have uploaded to iCloud then you can check this by going into a web browser on a normal computer and go to www.icloud.com
On your Oppo phone go into the Tools menu > backup and restore and tap on clone phone menu. If you don’t have this option use the download link below.
Again you will need to use the data transfer software Clone Phone software to get the data from iCloud to the Oppo phone. You can get that free software on this link here.
And you will need to make sure this version is up to date. If it is not up to date then you wont have the iPhone iOS option. Follow the video for more info.
I hope this helps out.

Transfer data from Android to Oppo

Transfer data from Android to Oppo

In this video I show you how to transfer all of the following data from Android to Oppo mobile phone.
As soon as you get a new phone you will need to copy across Videos, Music, Pictures, Documents. It can be tricky moving data from Android to Oppo mobile phone because the phones are made by different companies.
To start this process you will need to go into the Tools menu on the Oppo phone and go to backup and restore. Next you will need to press update. This then creates the tool called Clone Phone. This is the tool we will use to move the data between the two phones.

Clone phone will then have two options.
New phone or Old phone.

Android to Oppo

Next you will need to download the Clone phone app on your Samsung or Android phone if it is not on there by default. To do this you can use this link.
http://i.clonephone.coloros.com/download
Put the link above in your phones web browser and download it. Once you have downloaded the app go into your setting and allow it to work on your Android phone. It will need permissions to do this.
Once the Clone phone app is allowed and installed open it up. Press start cloning. It should come up with a QR reader. Scan the barcode of your Oppo phone.
It should say connecting and then the two phones should connect.
If you have issues connecting the two phones make sure you turn off security features like passcode or screen lock.
Press the Start Cloning button to start moving all your data across.

Pretty straight forward not much more to know. Its complicated if you don’t know how to do this so I hope my video will really help.
Apps and their data, Contacts, Messages and call logs should also copy across with this process.

OPPO R11s Unboxing & Firstlook

OPPO R11s Unboxing & Firstlook

This video & article will show you the OPPO R11s Unboxing & firstlook. If you are looking to buy a cell phone this is a great place to start. The OPPO R11s is the latest phone to come from the Chinese manufacturer OPPO. After going over the specs of the OPPO phone it seems to be about as good as the older Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. However the OPPO R11s doesn’t have the capability’s to do 3D like the Samsung can with the Samsung Gear. If you are not bothered with the 3D side of things and are after the latest model of phone then the OPPO is for you. However for $100 less you can get a Samsung Galaxy S7 with more function. So its hard to make a concrete decision here.
Will you notice the little if any difference in speed between the two devices. If you are using an iPhone or Samsung Phone and you are looking to switch to an OPPO make sure you take a look at the phone first. The OPPO has its own look and feel that are different from the other phones on the market and you might decided that you simply can’t handle the change.

Otherwise value for money the OPPO is a good phone if you don’t want to spend $1000 to $1400s on a phone.

OPPO R11s Phone

If you can get past things like the mining USB charging port being backwards and having to press the side button to get into the phone then the OPPO R11s is definitely worth a look. Would I go as far as to reocmmened this phone to my friend or family over the Samsung or iPhone models? Maybe not. But at least there is new fresh competition with these devices around. Maybe Apple and other manufactures need to take their existing phone line ups to the next level and start innovating again.

What Crypto Coin to mine?

What Crypto Coin to mine?

If you are new at Mining this video will give you some help choosing a coin and help you to get started in the world of Crypto coin.

I get allot of people on the 123myit YouTube channel asking me about what coins are good coins to mine. Really you should always do your own research and make up your own mind on what coin is right for you. But in this video I go through a few tips to help people gain some knowledge about the coins and hopefully make some great investment choices.

This video assumes you have built a mining rig and you are ready to start mining coins for a profit.
I personally use the website www.cryptocompare.com for allot of my information about the Crypto Coin. And this website is a really good place to start getting familiar with Crypto coins.
I started out mining Bitcoin via Nicehash miner but more recently I have switches from Nicehash to mining Ethereum via a pool called Nanopool. Check out the Nanopool and claymore miner setup video here.

I also talk about Electroneum (ETN) coin, which will be available to mine on Android phone.

Crypto Coin ETN

This coin has been as cheap as 3 cents USD!!! This coin is a bargin in my mind if the developers can get it working it will be very interesting and I think well worth at least a small amount of investing at the very least install the app and setup the wallet and get it ready for when you can start mining Electroneum ETN with your android phone. You can also earn free coins or refer friends through the Earn FREE coins menu inside the Electroneum ETN wallet. If you want to refer me my code is C2C4DD shameless plug 🙂 Thanks for your support.

Hopefully trying to get as many videos up as I can I have loads to show you guys but its just getting the time and effort to make these things happen.

Good luck I hope this info helps.
