So I exchanged my 810 for a new one (battery issues) and did a full restore from my old phone's backup. I blurred out my email addresses in the account restore area. As you'll see from some of the screenshots at the bottom, my device is having some odd issues with downloading some 13 "apps" - I imagine it's a bunch of the Nokia updates they'd been silently pushing over the last few days... but 13? Weird. I almost want to hard reset and try again, see what happens, but maybe I'll just wait it out.
Restoring is a fairly painless process - all the apps you had on your phone from the backup are automatically re-installed for you - it's kind of nice. All accounts linked to the phone will be found and passwords prompted, but in-app passwords and login information beyond that will have to be manually set up (i.e. games). The restore even brought back my accent color - when I started the phone it was T-Mobile Magenta (kind of pleasing, actually), but once my restore information was downloaded the accent changed to my regular green (as evidenced by me taking screenshots and seeing a green flash instead of a magenta one).
So, for anyone interested, this is how it works. (Some of the difference in timing was me just waiting around. I just left the phone alone and watched a TV show, not paying too much attention)
