I don't know about the messages, but contacts you can export by pressing the options button in the Contacts app. Then press export, and choose where you want to export to(SD). Then put the SD card into the other phone and do the same but then press Import from SD.

You can also first sync Contacts (and maybe also Calendar events) on the old phone with his Google account. Then afterwards sync again with the new phone. I am not sure about the messages. If you have McAffee Mobile Security on both phones, I think it can do it (via their server).

Try any backup app from play store.  That'll work.

You can also use the "Contacts Setup" option in PC Companion to transfer the contacts between the two devices.

Okay, apart from the Messages He wants that all calls, miss calls and all messages should be there. Its one of the advantage of Apple Iphone, even though you change your phone still you can see your full details from the other phone he added.

Honestly I really dont know if this is possible..

Please Help.
