I don't have the old phone anymore so there's no way anymore to use the old backup?. God , how is this possible on 2015?

You should be able to access the pictures, videos and music on your computer, but there are other ways to restore the contacts.

So can you still confirm one thing for me. I can't even restore my backup on another Z3c phone? What kind of backup is that?

That's indeed correct, you can't, again, for security reasons. But you can get an official statement if you contact Sony directly Local support
