^ What he said.


I'm currently debranding my phone. I've been through the process about 3 times so far. Worked fine in each :)

As long as you have a Microsoft account set up on the phone before the upgrade, and have enabled the sync/backup in it, you have not much else to do.


Don't expect apple-like backups though, it only backups account settings, sms, application lists. You won't have application settings backups for example.

I have ms account setup before, logged in using same account and I had backup enabled (even hit "backup now" right before flashing) :(

Datasense alone makes it a worthwile upgrade, the bug/self bricking corrections aren't trivial either

for Steve, and myself we already had Lumia devices which came stock with datasense.
