I have no idea if they plan on doing something like this, but Microsoft really needs to release an Upgrade tool to migrate from a Windows Phone 7 device to a Windows Phone 8 device. Since we know that WP8 will backup everything (finally!), Microsoft should really release a one-time tool that will back that data up from a WP7 phone to upgrade to a WP8 phone.
It's bad enough we're all being forced to start over, but to lose all of our data in addition to that is even more difficult.

I wish they would announce/confirm such a tool!
From what I gather, WP8 is going to back up app data to sky drive or something like that? If so, I wonder if WP7.8 will add that feature? That would allow you to swap phones fairly painlessly.
I played with a Lumia 900 yesterday and fell in love... I just don't want to loose everything now, switching to 7, just to loose it all again when I switch to 8. :(

And it would be extremely handy since so many here are changing to outlook.com and can't unless they reset their phone losing everything. There should be a way, even if it isn't automatic, but at least make a way for it to happen!!Blackberry Pearl (8130) -> LG Optimus 7 (LG E-900h) -> Samsung Ativ S (SGH-T899M) -> Lumia 520-> Lumia 625-> Lumia 830
