Default How to transfer app save data

I have been searching everywhere and I can't seem to find a way to transfer my app save data to a new phone. I have an HTC vivid, but got a replacement recently, but I can't seem to get my app save data to transfer over. Is there a way for me to do this on an un-rooted phone and for free?

And if the only way to do it for free is to root, would temporary rooting my phone be detected by AT&T?

I use an app called mybackup pro. The free version of this app runs just like the pro version for 30 days so look into that. You can save the data on the sd card. I never tried to actually transfer it between phones but it may work.

Astro file manager also works great and its free.The have added a new addition to Astro which allows you to create a free backup account.It looks really nice!

If you try to root or unlock your phone it can be detected by AT&T.

Thanks, I have tried both, mybackup doesn't work on another phone unless you buy the app, and as for Astro, it did not work for me... I'll just live with having to restart all my progress in games.

I have the .csv on my sim for contacts.. and I cant import them.. cant find a thing.. then I go to google play and bam.. they have all the programs I picked right there.. I was so happy.. so I figire I will re-install them... I hit the install button and nothing... its grad out... I was WTF....

then of course I have to research and waste time.. then I see this from google play...

" Your application purchases are tied to your Google Account and can be installed an unlimited amount of times on any device. (happy right?)... then...

"Note: free applications are not saved to My Apps after you remove them."

but this is bull because I see ALL my apps there and 99% are free.. it just wont let me DL it again... so now I have to go and hunt them down... AHHH!!!!!!
If you head here, log in with your gmail account, that should have a list of every app you've ever installed (it does for me).

Also, copy the contacts csv to your PC, log in to the gmail account you associated with your handset on the PC, select Contacts, More, Import, then select the csv you've just copied over. Perform a sync on your handset, and all your contacts should appear.
