Swapping Iphones

In the process of upgrading to a newer model iPhone. This is my first time. I don't wan to back up my stuff to the Cloud (don't trust it), is there an alternative to save stuff on my old iphone in case during the transfer something buggers up? Can you back up text messages and the likes to a local drive and transfer them once you change phones?

You can backup the phone via iTunes.

You could back up your information to iTunes.  Granted nothing happens to your computer, your information would be there.

Curiosity, why don't you trust the cloud?
