    Phone coming today - what pre-work needs done?

    Unfortunately, I was out of town Friday and missed Fed Ex. They should be back today.

    I have not upgraded Android>Android before. I've been looking around the forum and I see what I would need to do if I don't want my apps to migrate, but if I want apps, contacts, etc. to all move to the SG3, do I need to do anything?

    TIA,
    Grossie

    Do a backup in Accounts and Sync before shutting down your current phone and activating the new phone, once you activate new phone just do a backup Assistant Plus sync, also try this App called SMS Backup+ to backup all your SMS and recent call log , your apps will be in the Google play store once you register your Gmail account with Google play, once in Google play just go to Menu My Apps, there you will see all the Apps you ever downloaded, and yes you will have to reload the Apps to the new phone.

    Backup Assistant Plus. its on all VZW phones.
    Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.

    Thanks all

    Evidently, I've been fortunate. I never ran BAP on my DX. Running it now. Looks like it may take a while...

    If you don't want your apps to sync check out Nemo's reply here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/tec...upgrading.html

    Your contacts should sync automatically with your gmail account (my understanding, certainly no professional)

    I hope you have your S3. I am going stir crazy waiting on fed ex right now. Don't even want to take a shower because im afraid I will miss them haha.
