Default Replacement Phone

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All:

I should be receiving my replacement 8320 phone any day now, can someone tell me the best way to get everything set back up on my phone as I currently have it? I am basically asking if I should just back-up my data and do a restore with the new phone or is there a better way to ensure that my wifi settings etc are properly transferred over..

Thanks in advance

Use the switch device wizard in DM. It will backup all data as well as 3rd party aps and restore them to the new device.

Update: This worked out fine for me. However, the 3rd party apps didn't carry over but they are easy enough to reload. It seems they sent me a replacement phone versus a brand new one. To be honest, I cannot tell the difference and its working great without reboots.

Thanks again

Replacement phone are refurbs most the time unless they have none and have to use new.

I always would use the Switch Device program and it should have a box to check if you want 3rd party software moved, too!. The only time I would not use is if I suspected a software problem and then a back up would be your best option.
