The device is rather intuitive. All my numbers are synced with Google so they follow me from Nexus phone to Nexus phone. A real cool feature. If I ever need to factory reset my phone, all my numbers don't disappear.

They had to reset my phone with my numbers. It isn't like my HTC phone. Don't know why it didn't link the numbers in. Had issues with answering the phone and photos today. A learning curb that I will eventually get over, I hope.

If your Android phone is set up correctly you will lose very little. Your contacts sync to your Gmail account, your photos can sync with G+, your apps sync with Play and will reinstall themselves after a reset. It's just SMS and app data you might lose.

Ands that's even less and less of a worry.
Personally I do not sync my photos to G+. I refuse to do that. I use DropBox to mirror my phone pics.

Motorola and Samsung have both some out with software to ease migration from one phone to another. I just used the Moto one and it worked very well.

The problem with some contacts not being sync'ed properly happens when they are saved as PHONE contacts and NOT Gmail contacts.

I don't use G+. I rarely use my Gmail, but certain people I do use Gmail with. My ISP is Time Warner and I use email there. What numbers are on my phone aren't connected to any emails.

Omgosh~! My phone just went off beeping like crazy due to our bad weather conditions now~! If I set it, I have no earthly idea, but l really like that it did to notify me. Is this something that is automatically set on the new phones~?

Also look into the HTC One. Beautiful, high-quality phone.

I'm not sure where it is at, but I'm going to keep it. It would be nice to know that a tornado is blowing thru my neighborhood~!

I had an HTC sensation for over 2 years which had numerous of problems. I now got the Nexus Google phone. I was told by an excellent T-Mobile employee that HTC that is out now isn't so good.

I'm having some issues with the phone where it is set for places which is found at the bottom of the home page where the wand is. I can't delete my home or work address. The T-Mobile store told me where to go on maps and I can delete there but it is not deleting on that page where you can put sports, stocks, etc. Does anyone know how I can delete it~? Thanks
