    I'm getting a replacement 1520 in a few days and I was wondering what the procedure is for restoring backups and also moving the SD card.

    I'm worried if I move the SD card and do a restore that it will duplicate the contents on the card.

    Simple! You go settings > storage > tap on SD card bar > scroll to bottom > tap on safely remove SD card. I just did it yesterday when I got my new 830. It didn't duplicate anything. Once you have the new phone up and running just pop it in.

    For everything else, once you signed into the new phone with your Microsoft account, open the store app. Tap on menu (3 dots on lower right) then tap on "My apps". They all be restored.

    Thanks, I forgot that setting was in there. I remember back in 8.0 there were problems with duplication some people were having.
