    Default Swapping my S3 for my wifes S3

    I currently own the white version but really like the pebble blue, my wife wants my white S3. What is the best way to go about backing up and resetting my S3 so all my apps and data etc are saved? She just got her phone tonight so nothing needs to be done to hers, I just want my data to be available to load on her phone. Im a previous iphone user and this was pretty simple to do via itunes. I have the backup reset option checked on my phone and i have my photos going to the sim, contacts are synced through google account. Just concerned with apps and there data. Please advise, your help is very much appreciated!

    Want the best way?

    Root your phone, buy mybackup pro, then back up everything to the sdcard. Then swap sims and sd cards. Preform a factory reset, download mybackup pro from the market.

    Restore your APKs
    Reboot
    Restore the data to those apks
    reboot
    Restore MMS, SMS and everything under the data tab.

    Did this (sorta) last night when i put a new ROM on my phone. Sounds like a ton of work, took maybe half an hour

    It isn't hard and as long as you do not take the cord out in the middle of flashing with Odin, it is almost impossible to mess things up.

    Use the guide over in the rooting and roms section to do it and you will be fine. Read the whole thing, if you don't understand something ask.

    If you have questions, I will be off and on all night so ask away. The author of the guide is really the go to guy, but I am pretty well versed
