    Connect the iPhone to iTunes and make a backup. Once you get the new iPhone restore from that backup.

    If you have an iCloud back up, just restore the new phone with that, OTA. Via iTunes is better, as stated above. You should be able to transfer the SIM card to the new phone. Not sure though.

    I can’t really connect to iTunes if its charging port is defective.
