    I have a Lumia 920 and if I get a new/replacement phone wondering what the "gotchas" are when migrating. I don't auto sync photos and videos, so I would do that manually. I also know I have to re-link all my contacts across accounts. I can individually reinstall apps. Is that it?

    TIA

    All your contacts will reappear when you sign into your live account on your new phone. If you backup your apps, you will be asked if you want to restore them all on your new phone when you sign into it. No real gimmicks, basically everything transfers. Just backup your photos and videos.

    If you backup your settings...it will save account info, and your app list. So after you get your "new" phone and log in with your live/hotmail account, it will ask you if you want to restore your settings.

    It does not backup application settings or game saves. Just a FYI.

    I moved from a HTC 8X to a 928 and it restored all my accounts, just asked for the passwords for the accounts. It just stinks that I have to restart games that I already finished or was close to finishing...

    Nope, but just take screenshots and back them up with your pictures. Makes it a lot easier to get the start screen back to the way you had it.
