    Hello,
    I'm using a Lumia 820 with WP 8.1 preview at the moment and I have a 32gb SanDisk ultra class 10 SD card. Will that be good enough for the 1520?

    And I have stored a lot of apps in the SD card. If I install the dev preview or if the actual OTA update comes by the time I purchase the phone, will I be able to access those apps from the SD card? Because I remember reading an article here that said one would have to reinstall the apps that are in the SD card. But I'm not sure if I remember right!

    So kindly help. Thanks in advance!

    the official update will install the firmware so..you wont need to reinstall the apps...you can safely purchase the sd card and use it with the dev preview update...:)

    Dunno if the apps will transfer to NEW phone on the sdcard, worth a shot.

    The speed will be fine, that's ~ what I have.

    If you have apps in your Lumia 820 SD card and if you insert the card in your 1520 an message will popup recommending you to clean the preinstalled apps in the SD card so you wont be able to do it

    So does that mean I would have to reinstall those apps again?
    N another question. When I use my ms id for the new phone will the apps that were in my phone memory in 820 get installed automatically or is it like a factory reset making me install everything again?

    If you select to restore a back up you sign in to your phone then your start screen and apps will automatically be downloaded on your new phone.

    First perform a backup so when next time you enter your ms I'd in your Lumia 1520 you will be prompted to restore the backup (wifi must be enabled) and the start screen including apps on phone and SD card will automatically start downloading...you dont have to do it manually...but the thing is you must create a backup as I have said earlier..
