    Is it possible to transfer apps to my new S3 when it gets here? I've got a few apps that I paid for that I hope can be salvaged. I have a Droid incredible , please give me the steps to do this if possible, thanks.

    Since you bought them, when you go to the Google play store with your new phone, I think it should just say download. That is if you use the same google account for both phones. The app is paid for in that account

    Also, if you back up your device to your Google account, your new S3 will (probably) automatically download all compatible apps once you log in.

    The option to do so should be under Accounts & Sync for most devices. It may not be available for every phone due to manufacturer overlay.

    If you're Rooted you can even restore the whole lot to a Rooted S3 in one batch operation with Titanium Backup - main advantage of this is you get to keep your save game data/other app data.

    so then do I have to download each app one at a time and install on the GS3? Or is there a way to download and install all?
