    So my phone has dust under the glass and I took it into the local Verizon Wireless and they are having a new one sent to me.

    What is the easiest way to transfer all my apps to the new phone?

    I am currently rooted running apex 1.4 so i'll have to do all that to my new phone too, but that should be easy, I just want to know the easiest way to transfer all my free apps, since i know paid apps should be easy.

    The best way to do this if you want to keep everything the same is:
    If you have bootstrap recovery, which I am assuming you do since you are on Apex, go in right before you activate your new phone and make a back-up in bootstrap. Then activate your new phone, root it, install bootstrap and move the most recent back-up over to your new phone and install that back-up, you should be golden, just like you never missed a beat.
