Or just use HTC phones with HTC sync. That will take care of all your contacts, shortcuts emails, sms, photos and MP3s. Google Play will let you bring back all your previous apps. Jobs a good'ne.

Alternatively use an iPhone with iTunes. The only difference is the with the iPhone you have the desperate need to try and convince non-iPhone users that they made the wrong choice with their phone.

Here's me thinking this article may actually be informative and discuss the finer nuances of transplanting the look and feel of your phone to a new handset. In reality this article is as redundant and obvious as Pipa Middletons book on organising parties... "step 1, invite people"
