    So, VZW is sending me a new Droid

    because of all of the issues that I have had. When I get my new phone in the mail do I have to take my phone up there to get them to switch the phones over or can i do that myself? If I dont have to go up there then how do i transfer my service and get my contacts switched over? I just hate going up there because they are real rude.

    You should be able to activate the new phone from verizon's site through your account. Your contacts will transfer once you login with your gmail account.

    What about all the data, apps, preferences, etc... ?

    I may need a replacement phone as well. The glass on mine looks foggy on the inside.

    Everything should transfer except free apparently I think. So just make a list of your apparently before switching phones.

    About 99% of my apps are free. :-|

    And what's with the Droid autocorrecting the word apps? Usually I get Apple if I type apps.

    You can back up your apps with "Astro" onto your sd card if you want.. Also "my backup pro" saved texts, preferences, contacts, apps and you have the option to save all this to your sd card also.

    All your apps are linked to your gmail account. When I first got my phone it was freezing up so I put it back to factory default and all the apps started to download by themselves when I restarted the phone and put my gmail account back into the phone.

    Oops I didn't notice. The free apps thing I'm not totally sure about because some people say free apps come back and others say only paid apps. Can some one confirm?
