Oh and as far as backup options... I've always used Titanium backup which can pretty much do anything you want and I'd assume all you'd need to do would be to transfer the backup files onto your computer, then onto the new phone and restore them
Accept they he won't be able to use Titanium since he's not rooted yet.
But as Crawshayi mentioned - as long as you are saving your contacts as Google contacts your new phone will automatically repopulate them.
I am curious as to why someone is trading you their unlocked phone for your locked phone. If this is not a personal friend that you trust please make sure to call Verizon and check the phones iemi number. Or whatever that number is called. I never get the right letters in the right order.
