    your phone doesn't need GDR2 to do that...my GDR1 phone does that today.


    NOTHING backs up app specific settings like games. Some apps will save config files to your Skydrive, but that's it.

    If you have the cloud backup enabled, your phone will pull down all the apps you had once you log in with your Microsoft account. Just make sure to turn WiFi on or you'll chew through your data plan

    !!!!windows phone 8 backup does not work unless your carrier supports 3G without a configured APN!!!!!!!

    you only get 1 chance to start the restore process and that is when you boot up a hard resetted phone.

    it will ask you at the start to enter your live account to fetch your backup from the cloud. but if your carrier needs to be configured to connect your phone to the internet you are out of luck, it didnt work for me or these guys:
