I just noticed that my Droid Raz screen has a crack.  I have insurance for loss or damage so I am eligible for a phone replacement.  But then I have to set it all up again and that takes some time.  

Is there a way you can backup the Droid Raz and then restore it on the new phone?  I know I can get most of my Google contacts and calendar info back as well as most of my apps info from Google Play.  But I have my phone set up with certain apps on certain pages and I would love to be able to restore it to my current phone setup.  Anyone have a good backup recommendation?

Also, I’ve been putting off the upgrade to Jelly Bean so I can continue to use PDAnet.  I’m now wondering if the new (refurbished) phone Verizon will sent be already be upgraded to Jelly Bean??? That is a big downside.

Any ideas will be appreciated.

I have read about several programs that say they can do the job.

My Backup Pro LINK is probably the one I would start with. It is $4.99 and has a 30 day trial.

Some other solutions require rooting the phone. That is not something I want to do.
