If you haven't rooted your phone and installed anything like apps2SD, the process is pretty simple.

 

Just mount the phone on your computer, copy over all the data to a folder on your computer, unmount the phone then turn it off.  Replace the SD card, turn phone back on, mount, and copy your folders back over to the phone.  (If it says something already exists, tell it to overwrite.)  (Depending on your card, you might have to go to settings/SD card and phone storage, unmount the card, tell it to format it for the firs time before you will be able to see it, but I suspect the phone will do this automatically on a fresh card.)

 

The other option is to get a Micro SD card reader, turn of the phone, put the existing card in the reader, copy every thing, put the new card in the reader, copy everything back over, put the new card in the phone...  (If the computer says it's not formatted and asks you to format the new card, select FAT32 for the format type.)
