I have a Razr Maxx, but I recently purchased a Galaxy S6. It's already been activated at the store. All of my contacts, apps and pix transferred nicely, but I can't seem to retrieve my calendar off my Razr. It's pretty important to me. I lost my texts too, but I can live without them, I guess.
The text messages can be backed and restored up with several applications from the Play Store. One of them is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore.
Check the events on the old phone. Were they saved to the phone only calendar or your Gmail account? The events won't sync to the new phone if they were saved in the phone only calendar.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
