Okay I am migrating from my current Pre Plus (Verizon) to a replacement pre plus from verizon. My device was under warranty and was replaced due to my gps chip not responding at all ( I know of the gps problems for pre on verizon this is different i.e. it does not seem to get a fix at all even with vznavigator). Anyway I have the new device, so what is the best way to ensure smooth transition to the new device.

I solely use yahoo for my automatic sync (i.e. yahoo mail, addresses, calendar notes etc.). Few photos/videos and pdf files which I'll move via usb to my computer before I switch the phones. A few (but precious) apps downloaded from app store and a couple of preware patches.

What is the most painless way to enable that most if not all these apps/patches get sent to the new phone.
