I have purchased a new laptop 2 in 1 to replace an older PC. My account currently has 3 devices on it and I want to transfer protection to the new device but have protection on the old one and new one until I transfer several files to the new one and then take the old one out of service. Is this possible? Also what do I do to cover an android smart phone?

Hi @diy987, congrats on getting a new machine! 

For replacement question, as you mentioned, since your 3 seats of Internet Security are all taken, you cannot install on  the 4th PC unless you disable one of registration of your current PC. If want to transfer license to another PC, here's an online doc to help you manage the transfer:
"Transferring a license from one device or computer to another"

For your Android smartphone question, Internet Security serial number can't install Trend Micro Security on Android Phone because Internet Security license only covers PCs, and not including Android or iOS devices. If you'd like to protect your Android phone, you can:
- Purchase a separate Mobile Security for Android license now, please see:
Mobile Security for Android Smartphones and Tablet

- When you renew your Internet Security next year, upgrade to Maximum Security or Premium Security to protect devices on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. For a side-by-side comparison of the different editions, please see:

Thanks and please let us know if your question was answered.
