    Transferring apps and data from old Moto to new Moto

    I bought a new unlocked Moto G Power 2020 and installed a Visible Wireless SIM. I skipped the start up part that lets you transfer all your apps and data from another phone. I used Visible for a while and decided it would be my daily driver and now want to transfer every thing from my Moto G Play. I can't figure how to get back to the start section that allows that transfer via Google. Can someone show me the path?

    I did the same thing, but don't remember what I did to trigger the Google Cloud transfer. I think it may have prompted me when I pulled out the sim & popped it back in, but not sure?

    I do see a "Set Up from a nearby device" option under Google in the settings menu. I would try that if the sim removal method doesn't work.

    Figured it out. Removed the SIM from the new phone and did a system reset. Rebooted and it came up with the set up an new phone prompts.

    I used to avoid that. But now I love it. Saves so much time. But it takes hours. But not days as without it.

    By "system reset" do you mean factory reset?
