Default [Q] restore samsung galaxy s3 backup file to nexus 5

I was using Samsung galaxy s3 till my phone crashed. Now I bought a nexus 5. I have the contacts, sms..etc.. backed up via kies backup. But how do I restore them now on my nexus 5. And no I had not synched my contacts to google account. Can someone please tell me how to do this??

Google backsup contacts automaticaly, for sms backup there are several apps in Play.

USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

There's no direct way to do it. You'll have to find a way to extract the data from your KIES backup. You'll be better asking in the S3 forum. KIES is a samsung only platform.

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

Tool found here: https://www.lord-luncher.de

Not sure how well it works, but doesn't seem like there are many options beyond contact extraction for anything else I've seen.

Lesson here is that Kies sucks (beyond loading drivers).
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com for more info!

Search google for PHONE MINER mate it is a paid for programme but will allow access to your backup
