Your contacts and calendar (by default) will be stored with your gmail account. Most likely when you activate another phone you'll immediately see this data if you activate the gmail (Gooble Play store) with the same account.

My guess is that you have to remove it, then reinstall it from the Playstore. It will probably see the installed file on the phone, but your Playstore account doesn't know about this, and won't activate the update. You can use Titanium Backup to backup the game, if your phone is rooted. Titanium Backup can backup apps and their data, and restore either of ...

By default all the apps are forward compatible(moving apps from a previous version say 4.0 to 4.4.4 in this case) because there are only new API additions to the existing ones . As mentioned by @Dan In Rare cases you may find the app not compatible with the latest version only because an API is removed possibly due to some issues. Still if the app is not ...

Generally this shouldn't be a problem. The only problem with restoring between different Android versions is when you backup and restore the system apps' data from a different version. If you only restore the apps you installed and their data, you'll be OK in most cases. A few apps might have different versions of the app for different Android versions, so ...

Yes, that is painful. Happened with me once. You will have to root your phone in order to get the data back, but it usually only works if the root has been done before the incident. There are several softwares for different OS which enables us to do deep scan and fetch the data files from the phone which had been lost (You should be able to open the phone ...

Considering you phone is always writing some kind of data to your internal storage, it's going to be a very difficult to recover them - at least not all anyway. Unless something like PhotoRec can do it (as mentioned in the comments), I'd say they are gone for good. An alternative, and probably a very expensive one, is to take it to someone who ...

I have only one user account but since that app data is user-specific, is contained in my user area, and the backup is placed in my user area, I'd be surprised if Helium would have any trouble backing-up each account separately. I have not had occasion to restore a user's ...
