    I have a Galaxy S3 w/ VZW. I cracked the screen of my phone to the point it can no longer be used (actually the galss is fine the LCD is shot). My insurance covered a replacement however I have a few serialized apps that I can not recover since the play store apps can not be saved to the SD card. My question to a two part:
    1) How can i transfer the apps from my broken phone to my new replacement keeping in mind they have to come from the PHONe not the play store and
    2) If i take the mother board from my broken phone and put it in the new phone, will there be any conflicts, will it work, and is there any way the store will know when I return the broken phone with the new board in it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I did, mainly my issue is with things like the Blizzard Authenticator application. I don't have the recovery information for the app and the account is not mine so I can't remove the authenticator from the account. Theres a few other work related apps that I use that are serialized too (mainly development apps for the military) and its a HUGE pain to report a broken phone and redo the apps. So I'm trying to do some kind of swap
