    How can I transfer files (contacts, SMS, MMS, notes etc.) from Samsung Ace 2 running on GingerBread (2.3.6) to Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (KitKat 4.4.4)? The application Sony Xperia Transfer will not work with Gingerbread (neither Mobile nor Desktop version). I can't upgrade Ace 2 because the phone does not see any upgrades. Apparently Samsung released an official upgrade straight to Jelly Bean but I never received it. (Plus, I've read that the phone's specs are too weak and it may perform worse after this upgrade. Right now, Ace works fine on GB.). All sorts of phone transfer apps I could found online are too expensive. Some are described by producers as freeware/free trials but after installation it turns out they can transfer only five contacts or cannot see/initialize/etc. I have backed up all the files to Kies 2.6 on my computer but I have no idea how to transfer them to Xperia. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thank you. I installed Easy Backup & Restore on the old and the new phone, created backup on SD card on the old phone, moved the card to the new phone, opened the app and hit Restore. The app asked me to approve it as the default SMS app, I tapped OK. And nothing happened. No signs of restoration process taking place.
