Transferring everything from one phone to another
I checked some of the threads tackling this topic but I was still left with some unanswered questions. So, I'm trying to determine the best way of transferring all content (migrating) from one Android phone to another Android phone.
My main concern is apps and their associated data/settings. I have 'Back up my settings' and 'Automatic restore' enabled in Settings>Privacy on my current phone. Do these get transferred to a new phone? And, what exactly is meant by 'settings' in this context? Does it include app settings? Would it include contacts, calendar entries, SMS messages, etc? From what I understand, transferring these can be done using other apps like MyPhoneExplorer (via a PC).
