    Like many, my DroidX is ordered and on the way.
    I would like some input from those of you who have already gone from the Droid to the DroidX about the easiest way to transition apps, contacts, and anything else.

    I'm not really expecting it to be difficult. I have a rooted Droid, Titanium Backup (which probably won't help), AppBrain (which I hope will) and all my contacts are in my Google account.

    I'm just looking for things to watch out for and ways to make it easy.

    Thanks
    RJM

    I Used an App on the market named Lifesaver.
    It saved all my text messages and Contacts To my SD card.
    When i got my DX i just switched the sd cards and installed the app
    and it only Took a cple minutes to "bring it back". i loved it.
    So far as the apps, Well i'm still trying to find a better way then just reinstalling them.

    Good Luck

    Try out MiQ. If you look up "Backup" on the market its near the top. Worked really well for me. The thing I liked is it also backups your old Text messages and pictures. So when I synced my new X all my conversations were still there.

    It was a breeze. Just like AJ_EVO stated, those two steps are all it takes. I didn't really even use appbrain, just went to the market and all my paid apps were denoted by "paid" next to it and then I just installed them. Since I still had my Droid, I looked through the apps and recalled the ones I wanted. Several of them I wasn't too worried about installing on the X, so I skipped those.

    Best surprise, was that I can still use the old Droid on wi-fi with all its functionality besides making calls. Apps still update and work as normal.

    Very cool. When you get a chance to set it down, give us some initial impressions.
