Contacts - synched with Gmail, not an issue APPS - I haven't used App Brain market sync to install apps, but one time I ran the sync and my apps on the phone were "replaced" by what was on my App Brain list, such that I lost some apps on the phone and had to re-download them. My bigger question is how to "preserve" paid apps and if those are automatically accounted for by virtue of the market being associated with a Google account. I bet once I sync my Google account, everything should be "synched" (but how with regards to apps?), right? SMS - how, if I'm not rooted? Ringtones, background - manually find them on my other phone and move them over? Finally, if there is an order that's best to do this all in, what is it? Thanks!
