    I recently upgraded from an S2 to S4, if you have a MicroSD card maybe you could copy all your files from S2 to MicroSD, take out the card and insert into S4 then copy into S4?

    What version of android is your s2 on? If it's on 4.0 or higher, make a backup using Helium, put it on the SD card, then restore it on the S4

    Update it. Connect to a computer which has Kies s installed and use that.

    Or my backup works as a good alternative to kies.

    Backs up sms, mms, contacts, apps (excludes app data) etc to your external sd card.

    Restoring the same way via my backup.

    Actually, I was suggesting he use Kies to upgrade to Android 4+, si he can use Helium, which is better than MyBackup
