When I get a new Android phone, can I migrate all of my data or do I have to start over?
delia25 2 years ago
I've had my first Android smartphone for almost two years, and I think it is time for an upgrade. This is the first time I've replaced a smartphone, and I don't know how big of a deal it is. Do I get to keep all of my data and apps? I assume that I can go reinstall the apps from the Android Market, er, Google Play. But what about all of the data that makes most of those apps actually useful, do I have to start from scratch? And is there an easier way than just reinstalling everything?
