Transfer content to a new handset

I want to save my pictures, contacts, calendars, etc., to my Sim card to transfer into a new handset. What is the best way to make a smooth transition?

Your SIM Card cannot be used as a storage device to move content between phones.

The only thing that moves from phone to phone on your sim card is your phone number. If you have a prepaid plan and have not received a new sim card with your new phone, then you will pop out your sim card and switch it to your new phone. 

If you're using a smartphone, switching content between smartphones is extremely easy. 

You posted in Samsung so I'm assuming you have Samsung for both your old and your new device. Install Samsung switch on both devices ( or check your applications to see if it is already installed) 

Then open Samsung switch, follow the prompts to transfer data phone to phone.
