    So i've googled and it says to just transfer pictures via usb cord

    i tried moving pictures from sd in my pc to iphone, i tried connecting both devices to the pc, even tried to send the pictures via bluetooth. how in the world do i get my old pictures from my android/sdcard to the iphone?

    Are your pictures backed up to google photos. If so you could download the google photos app on your iPhone and access them that way. You could even down them to your iPhone if you wanted

    Another way is to import your photos to iTunes and then transfer them over to the iPhone. You can do it over wifi but if you have a lot it would be better to connect you iPhone to your computer.

    When you're first setting up the phone you can select the Android option and select your photos on your SD card. I did this when I transferred from my Note 7. It's done over wifi.

    I also hate sending my photos off into a cloud somewhere.

    You would have to reset your device. It's the only way to do it. Download the Move to iOS app from the Google Play Store. It will transfer everything from your Android phone. The easiest way is to use the Google photos app. You shouldn't worry about using that app. It is very secure. I used it on most of my Android phones and I'm still using it on my iPhone.

    When my wife upgraded from a little LG to the iPhone, I could find no way to transfer her photos. So I emailed them 20 photos per email. But she only had about 400 photos. It worked though. Lol

    Yes, you'd have to reset your phone and have a little bit of time. For an anti-Clouder it's the only way I'd get my 1000+ pics. I'm a hoarder and have a problem.

    OMG 400 LOL. i never have that many photos, every month or so i move all my photos to an 2TB external hard drive for safe keeping. but i did email myself a few pictures when i was in a rush. Wish it was a simpler way. ESPECIALLY simplier then having to start all over again on a phone im still getting my barrings on.

    If you don't have many photos, email is pretty simple. You can mark up to 20 to send per email for normal size photos.
