It looks like I may have to go to sprint to get a new phone, but first a few quick questions...

What info can they move of off this phone? Just contacts, or can they also move over things like my email, facebook, etc...

I'm assuming it's just best to start over on my homebrew apps?

Should I just back everything up via the backup app? What exactly does that backup?

Then lastly, I purchased one of those protective skins, forget brand - but have a receipt from Best Buy, I am assuming that is a $25 loss to me or has anyone had any luck getting a new one? Are they even really necessary? It has a lifetime warranty, but it's already pealing at the edges...
