The latest official VZW OS release is 4.7.0.75

If you do a full backup using Desktop Manager, you can restore it to your new device. To test it, you can do a backup then restore on your device before you swap it. Remember to wipe your device before you bring it into the store.

Wipe at Options > Security > General Settings > Menu > Wipe Handheld.

That will NOT restore the .75 OS.
