    Unfortunately my 920 screen shattered a few days ago. I'm getting a replacement I. A day or two. Is there anyway to transfer all my apps and data to the other phone? Are my purchased apps still going to be there for me to just install on my new 920 once I register the phone with the same Microsoft account?
    Thanks.

    They should be. It'll probably still say "buy" but once you tap it, it'll know you already paid for it. That's what I've read from other people.

    As long as you had the automatic phone backup turned on, when you first setup your new phone, use the same windows account to setup the phone, it will prompt you in the setup process to restore the backup. All your text messages will come over and it will automatically reinstall your apps. Specific app settings will not be restored however.

    Overall, the process is very seamless and works well.

    Just copy your contacts to the sim card and copy back to the newer phone. This method limits the transfer by the simcard limit and can only used to transfer phone numbers and hence is not by anyone nowadays.
    There are no local contacts on Windows Phone 8. They're all in the cloud. So, you'll get them when you restore your settings on your new device.

    Do copy off your photos and videos you shot - those are not backed up/restored.
