    Are both devices rooted?

    If not:

    1. Are the contacts saved on phone as phone contacts, or as Google contacts? If they are saved as Google Contacts, once you log in to your new phone using the same Gmail account, the new phone will automatically download them.

    2. For messages, get SMS Backup and Restore from Market, make a backup on the SD card. When you transfer the SD card to the new phone, restore the backup file using the same app.

    3. For the pictures, if you will be using the same SD card, there would be no problem.

    Thanks for the reply, im probaly going to confuse things further, but will try and answer above. If ive added a contact directly to the phone i have saved to the phone and not sim card. I use outlook and have a gmail account and have noticed the phone updates automatically if i add anything to outlook. Unfortunately i have had to reset my gmail password today and cant find how to update the gmail password on the phone as it now wont sync, due to the change of password. Du you know where to change the password in the phone for the gmail.

    Unfortunately I have no idea if the phones are rooted ? all ive done with the new phone is charged the bateery not even switched on.

    If you did not root the phone, then you aren't. You could try to just download a free app off the market the requires root (like one of those screen shot apps or titanium). It will alert you if you aren't rooted.
