I want to upgrade from iPhone to WP and it looks like data transfer won't happen in-store.  Contacts, photos, and data transfers need to happen on my own computer.  To add insult to injury, the machine used at my local store doesn't even recognize a Windows Phone!  Wassupwidat? I can't imagine how many sales will be lost if they don't get this fixed.  C'mon AT&T!

Really there isn't a way to have everything transfer over to a new device. 

 App can be reinstalled from the Web market place, but you can just DL the app "Reinstaller' on the new device and it will help reinstall process go quicker. Either way you are just getting the apps any settings or data will be lost. 

 SMS are not backed up. The app"Zapi Messaging" will back up SMS but only ones sent through it so to late for that now.

Contacts/calendar are sync'd to the email assigned to your phone so as long as you use that email your contact will sync when it is added.

Photo can be backed up to skydrive or PC

Docs and music same as photos with sky drive or PC.

 I think that covers everything that can be done probably missed something though. It is an issue with WP7 it get fixed soon but I wouldn't hold my breath.

It is simple. Go to windowsphone.com sign in with your live id account and then u choose purchase history and that's it.. It is working for apps only. No sms threads.. unfortunately :/
