No fuss, no muss. All you have to remember is your gmail password and viola, you're done...
This is the easiest way. I moved from my Dinc to the DNA and contacts all moved. Took as long as to type the PW.
However there should be an option on your backup assistant software on your phone that should allow you to do a restore somehow. I would turn the sync off and see if you can do a manual sync/restore.
