That would be a separate question. I'll put the TiBu variant as answer here meanwhile.

comment Backup memos from Samsung Galaxy S and restore it on a Nexus 5
Exactly that was what I thought about: backing up the entire app including its data with TB on the Galaxy, and then restoring it on the Nexus. Not sure if it would run there, but worth a try.

Manually sorting things out; yes, that could work. Still, no idea how to achieve that. // I was thinking of adb backup, but that doesn't work with 2.x. Are your devices rooted? If not, I'll have to pass this to somebody familiar with Samsung specifics.

If your device is locked to Vodafone (as you write), a different ROM won't change that. You will either have to use a Vodafone SIM, or have the device unlocked from the provider. I'd suggest you first try whether the problem persists with a Vodafone SIM, to make sure whether a SIM-lock is the cause.

Will be hard to import them in another app, as the formats are unlikely to match. What Android version is running on the Galaxy S?

comment With Android 4.4 (KitKat), my notification icons are always gray. Am I in trouble?
@ThatBrazilianGuy maybe you make that a separate question, that's quite a bit specific (and I don't know to tell)?

@AlE. OP and colleagues share the same problem (the one described), as I understand it.
