Default Replacing 2 week old Bold And have questions on backup

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, I am replacing my two week old bold tomorrow. It has some issues even though the OS has been upgraded. I might have just received a lemon.

However my question is about everything I have put on the bold since it was purchased such as apps, software, memos, etc.

I have backed up my bold through the desktop manager.

Can I retain everything along with phone profiles so when I connect my new bold it will be as if I never changed the phone? Please let me know in detail what I would need to do or is it as easy as plugging the new bold and restoring it through the desktop manager? Thanks very much.

If you have both devices at the same time, use the Switch Device Wiz in the Desktop Manager.

If you don't, you will need to restore your backup you have made.

And you this method to backup all third party apps:

Default Great thank you.

Will it bring over everything with the restore mode minus the third party apps? Thanks!

It should.

The switch device wizard will bring over everything - including third party and OTA apps.
