Well depending on what she has syncing, most of the data is already in the cloud.
- Samsung account will back up S-App data, SMS/MMS, and call logs
- Google will back up almost everything in it's ecosystem, contacts, pictures (optional), auto download previously installed apps (asked during initial setup), and restore some app data.
- DropBox's 50GB will take care of music, photos, and miscellaneous downloads that might be on the internal SD card.
qbking has a tutorial for unrooting and rooting the new one will take a matter of minutes. The trick is just remembering that when you get the new phone to skip setup and install all the updates then factory reset to avoid the software issues.
