| | Got a replacement Pearl, not sure next steps?

Ok so I had problems with my Pearl, the trackball wasn't working right, so I called TMo and they said they'll send me a new one for free. So I just got it and I'm trying to make sure I'm covering my bases when transfering everything from the old to new Pearl, making sure I get all my apps, desktop ver, and unlocked themes, as well as making sure I know how to super wipe out my old Pearl as I have to return that to TMo.
So far its pretty easy / straightforward suprisingly.
I just plugged in the new pearl, computer recognized it, syncronized my calendar, tasks, and contacts from my work Lotus Notes, then setup my personal email (all the info was stored on the desktop manager I assume because it was already in there after I sync'd up).
So right now I did an application loader option and it said something to the effect that my desktop manager is older than my Pearl and I selected the option to keep the older settings since I remember I had to do something like that to unlock themes.
Right now as I type, the phone is loading all the apps and going thru that long process where it backs up everything, deletes everything, then reinstalls everything. Its pretty late and I remember last time I did this when I got a new desktop manager is that it took a couple hours.
So I guess I'm going to go to sleep and hope the install is complete in the morning.
Anything else that you can think of that I HAVE to do to make sure the phone is the way I want it? I'm sure I'll have to reinstall / download Opera, and BB Alerts, and Color Pearl as well as probably doing something complicated to get that theme I love (I believe its the vodafone today theme -white. The one that shows on the main screen my phone calls, my email, my SMS, and top two calendar items, and the background is the map of the world)
But I feel like I'm forgetting something major...or maybe Blackberry's are just this user friendly / easy to get a new Pearl to the same settings as the old Pearl?
