    I am considering asking Verizon to replace my bionic due to excessive whining on the headset. I'm looking for tips to record or replicate my apps and other settings on the new handset.

    Your apps are automatically downloaded again once you sign in to your gmail account on a new phone.

    One tip: titanium backup.

    You have to be rooted to use it but it's definitely the easiest and most reliable method. I've always had problems with the free/non-root apps. The price is always going up so get it now.

    And you can always unroot your phone after everything was restored, takes like 3 minutes.

    Google will remember a lot of your stuff. When I signed in for the first time google restored my WiFi settings (including my wpa password) and a wallpaper I had. Imagine my surprise to seeing a MIUI wallpaper on first boot.

    Go to settings, privacy and make sure back up my data and auto restore are both checked.
