Default How hard is it to transition from 8330 to 8530?

Hi - My 2 years on my Curve 8330 (VZW) are long since up and I'm thinking of treating myself to an 8530. My understanding is that the only downside is the lack of camera flash, which seems dumb, but I can deal.

But how hard is it to move over?
-SD card - I think this is trivial
- address book - ditto
- 3rd party apps - (all purchased through handango) do I have to re-purchase them, or ? (I assume i have to re-install them all, one at a time (sigh).
- General settings (profiles, ringtones, browser favorites, Email preferences, etc) - do I need to re-program by hand?
- theme - I found an unusual theme that some guy did that displays all icons as text - I'm guessing i have to hope I find another (or SOL) if I switch?

what am I forgetting?

I mean, to be honest, every time I think of all this, and the fact that I'm not really unhappy with my curve, I decide to stand pat - a bit surprising that RIM has set things up that way - doesn't sell any HW for them..
