I have an XA2 Plus as a daily driver, upgraded since about v3.0.4 all the way to 126.96.36.199.
I have a brand new Xperia 10 iii that i flashed to SFOS 188.8.131.52.
I used the backup facility on my XA2 (yesterday) to migrate my profile onto the new 10 iii (restore).
At no point (4.1, 4.2, 4.3**, and now 4.4), has the process ever really achieved anything that I wanted:
I do appear to have migrated some accounts (though they need resupplying with credentials).
I do appear to have my browser shortcuts. Yay.
I do appear to have my calendar events. Yay.
I do not have any notes (though this is fine, as the import process on the X did at least say that this had failed).
I do not have any call/message history (though this is understandable as the sim associated with this activity is not present).
I do not have my Contacts!!! This is a big one (seems to be the very core of what I might want to backup and restore…?).
What exactly should I be expecting from the backup/restore process?
Right now my shiny new daily driver phone has… no Contacts in it.
