    I have a Lumia 900, getting a Lumia 800 that I want to set-up "EXACTLY" the same.

    Can I just use a backup of the 900 and then restore onto the new 800?

    Other ways to do this so I get not only all the apps... but get all of the app & system settings as well?

    Thanks;

    No. Sorry. You'll have to set up the 800 from scratch.

    That is too bad. I was hoping that the Backup/Restore facility worked something like iTunes where a new device can just be restored with a prior backup and other than serial # ... is exactly the same.

    Sounds like I can use the Reinstaller app that will compare my ID on live.com and download all of my apps but then set-up and logins will all need to be re-entered?

    Has anyone used the Reinstaller app to good effect???

    Reinstaller will install your apps, but specific settings in the apps won't be restored, so you'll have to go in one by one.

    Its the same thing you can see if you log in on windowsphone.com.
