Windows Phone 8.1 has finally caught up on the competition in respect to backup/restore. You can now fully restore a Windows Phone over Wi-Fi without losing either your settings nor your start screen. It will automatically install all apps and restore your configuration including accounts and ring tones. You will however have to log into third party services.

Just using your Microsoft account or do you have to store the backup anywhere manually before?

Microsoft account only. It needs a backup from Windows Phone 8.1. Developer Preview is good enough.

Is this also the case for Windows RT?

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
