Default Would this backup/restore have problems?

I have a Samsung Fascinate running 2.1-update1. My wife has an LG Enlighten with 2.3 - not sure what build - but mine freezes with every OTA atempt and hers updates, so I'm considering changing from my phone to hers. (She's given up on using a smart phone!)

I have MyBackup Pro. I can make backups of everything and save them to the SD card.

Wondering if it would *likely* work if I did a backup from the Fascinate nto the card, installed the card into the Enlighten (after doing a factory reset on the Enlighten), and then did a restore? The object, of course, is to install all the apps, media/etc, and settings that are currently on my Fascinate onto the Enlighten so I could pick it up and use it with little if any speed bump?

The system is different, the screen size is different, the LG has a physical keyboard and buttons, the LG and Fascinate have different layouts in the app drawer and who knows where else .... Are these enough to cause a crash? Or d'ya think it just might work?

If you do just the applications, you should be fine. The system settings, layout, etc would likely not work. I personally would not recommend you try to restore those. It'll bork things.

Understand the system settings. What I'm wondering about is the app settings - are they at the system level? or do they reside at app level and would likely be backed up with the app? (I'd hate to have to go in and totally reset my K-9 email, for example! I'm not sure I remember everything!!)
