    Second question would be can I still use my old HD7 to play Bug Village and be logged in to xbox live from 2 phones at the same time. I can beat everything all over again on the new phone.

    I've done it, didn't seem to have any issue but I didn't do anything beyond showing someone my avatar on the second device.

    Microsoft fixed that 2 xboxs can log in at the same time. When I go on my xbox it says I am signed into messenger at multiple locations, assuming thats the phone causing it.

    I really wish they would allow cloud saving on WP7 now that the 360 has it.

    I can only hope. I think the reason why cloud storage isnt supported yet is that it isnt used much quite yet. I like the gamertag fix but no need to save my games. I would rather have backups available on Zune first and just reload saved games from my pc or save on skydrive.

    If I may expand on the OP's question: With an iphone if I bought a new one, all I had to do was sync it with itunes. itunes would ask me if this was a new phone and if I wanted to transfer the old phones files onto it. When all things were said and done, the new phone would have literally everything from my old phone put on it, down to what I had last looked at in the web browser.

    So I guess my question is, you can't back up your old phone in Zune and then reinstall all of that into a new windows phone?

    You can to an extent boneycat1.

    Zune will back up your apps, videos, photos and music. It won't however back up your SMS messages, app settings or game saves. :(

    Is there a way of extrapolating it from the registry of the phone to find where it saves the files and email them as an attachment. That was alot of big words in one sentence...lol.

    I mean going into the registry to find out where the files are saved at and try and copy it. I am sure there might even be a homebrew app that can do it, or not. I am so used to my old Pre being able to tweak everything. I am having trouble getting used to the restrictions...ugh

    I know, I must be serious now and again blackhawk7188, sorry. :blush:

    I still don't think there's any way even with unlocked phones to backup game saves.

    Have a look through the links here and you might see something. (Backup Tools)

    Homebrew solutions to back up your Windows Phone

    Way too complicated plus I would need a dev unlocked or jailbroken phone which I do not. I can just finish Bug Village on it and the racer career on NFS.

    The other issue is backing up and restoring to a new device that's different hardware. A lot of us are coming up on the chance to upgrade our gen1 devices.
