Referring to the above I just got my Lumia 920 back from warranty and they replaced my motherboard.
I have virtually everything restored except my APPS OR APP LIST!
Can anyone tell me how I can do it? Previously all my app list backup was activated before I sent my phone for repair.

You'll have to log into your account at windowsphone.com and manually install from there.
Remember to select 'Send Apps To My Phone' from Settings>Find my Phone.
It is a long and slow task, but it does give the option to start afresh.
Texts should be saved by your account.Black Lumia 920 EE

Alternatively, you can do a hard reset on your phone and as it boots up, log in with your Microsoft account. If you have a data signal (very important!!), it will look for a backup and give you the option to restore from there. My wife had to send hers in and we found out that that was the only way to restore from backup.

On a hard reset, or changing devices, yeah the option to do a backup will appear. If I'm you.. Pull your pics and such to PC or load to SkyDrive, then reset it. On restart, use your windows live login, and everything will start pulling down, even your old texts, providing you had the backup settings tabbed..

Thanks guys! I restored my apps trough the WP website. It took long but it worked.
The major pain is the *** was to re-organize my home screen!! Isn't there a way to back up the home screen?
Can't really connect my Lumia to the PC as neither Zune or Nokia PC suit will detect it.

It works by hard resetting phone by going to Settings-->About--> Reset Phone.
After the phone boots up again, it will ask for the Live ID. Enter the Live ID details, after which it will download and sync whatever was backed up.
Initially only the accounts that have been added are synced and all the apps are installed in the background. So one can quickly switch to WiFi once the initial steps are done. It downloads around 2MB data, before bringing the phone to a usable state, where WiFi can be turned on.
