    I am able to import photos off of my phone to my SP3, but how can I get the photos back to my phone if I were to get a new one.

    there are a couple of ways, and it depends on your phone, but you should be able to see your phone as a usb device if it's connected via a usb cable. then, you should be able to copy and paste if it's a winphone/iphone/android.

    it you have onedrive on your phone, you can sync your photos on your sp3 to your onedrive photos, and then be able to see them in your onedrive on your phone. you can also download them from onedrive to your phone.

    I've heard Bluetooth file transfer is possible, but I've never done it. typically, that's also the slowest way to transfer files.

    You could also use ftp. There's a few apps for that in the store. It let's you upload files using ftp over your WiFi. Handy when you don't have a wire around :)
