device switch

Recently switched from torch 9800 to z10. The store did a transfer of my contacts, but they all did not transfer. I traded that phone in for a credit, so I no longer have it. I did a back up before I went to store. How can I transfer the info from back up) mostly just contacts and calendar) to my new z10?

Re: device switch

You can use the old backup, When you select the RESTORE, scroll down to the "use Legacy Device backup" and select the one you want.
