Question [Q] How do i migrate from old phone to new phone?

Hi All!

Happy Christmas and merry new year to you guys!

I re-post this, because i apparently asked it first wrongly on a ROM-thread..

I wanted to check from you if anyone has any guide/tool that I should use when moving all olad apps from an old phone to a new phone. I will install Gin2Kitcat on the new phone, and many apps in my old phone save their data in the phone's memory, so they will not be transferred to the new phone by just moving the SD-card and re-installing the apps.

Is there anything else (than sms and callogs) that I should remember to backup before moving data to a new phone (in my case to a brand new Xperia Pro instead of my old over 2 years old Xperia Pro! )

For apps, you will need root. And Titanium Backup is the best option there.
Contacts - use the built-in contacts app to back them up.
Messages, Calendar, Call Log - personally using Mobile Backup 2 app.

You can use Titanium Backup to backup messages, call log, browser bookmarks and Wi-Fi settings as well. Contacts can be synchronised with your Google account so you don't need to backup. Just in case, you can also backup your contacts to the SIM card or SD card if I can remember correctly.
