    I dropped my Lumina 1520 over the weekend and trashed the screen and digitizer. Somewhat of a shock as it was less than a foot drop and I have the screen and the back protected with Ghost Armor. In any event, I have a new 1520 on the way.

    My question is this. How do you transfer the device settings to the new phone? I have the option set to back it up to One Drive. I have not been successful finding a way to "restore" or download those settings.

    Any ideas?

    I used this tutorial when I needed to restore my phone back when I had WP8; not entirely sure if it is the same process for WP8.1

    If you set your original 1520 to backup your apps and settings, you will be presented with the option to restore when you login for the first time to your new 1520. Note that if you have more than one model of phone (i.e. 1020 and 1520), you will have the opportunity to select which device settings to restore.

    Madam ImAdam's provided tutorial link provides an excellent step-by-step process.
