    Hi Guys, Sorry I am new to this techy stuff.
    My six month old Desire has taken to switching itself off and on at random.:( I am getting a new one but how do I transfer downloaded applications from old to new phone-----( assuming I can get it to stay on long enough !!!). If I have a game with score records can this be transferred??
    I have backed up data but I don`t think the applications are transferred to the sdcard.would be grateful for your assistance.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    MyBackup Pro can back up a tonne of things, including apps + app data, without root access.

    The free trial is only for 30 days though, so you need to make sure you'll get the new phone within that time.

    If you had your phone set to backup to the "cloud" it will re-download your apps. My Droid has done this several times after doing a reset.

    I tried Mybackup a suggested but I have lost everything I wanted to keep as the program will not work on the new phone.........unless I buy the pro version....talk about being held to ransom.
