    Backing Up Before Getting a Replacement?

    I have to get a replacement Motorola Droid, how can I back up stuff (I do not sync my contacts with Google). Are there any apps someone could recommend for that so I can restore all of my settings/contacts etc. on the new phone?

    Thanks!

    I don't know why you're replacing the Droid, but if it works well enough to export contacts to the SD card, you could do that. Then put the old card into the new phone and import. I suspect you can also transfer the exported file to your desktop, from the SD card, but I don't know for sure.

    Back up

    I think AppsManager was good for backup when I had to do a hard reboot of my phone.

    if you have a google account,your phone will send all your contacs to the google account,so when y get the new phone,it will sync back all the contacs already in your g account,I now,Im on my second droid!,and waiting for my third! (usual blackout problems!)

    EVERYTHING is backed up to your google account. You don't need any 3rd party backup applications. Once you log into your google account on the new phone it will load everything back up that you had on your old phone.

    I'll go one better: with MyBackup Pro, I got a no-touch restore of everything but my non-GMail e-mail accounts. I needed to get a replacement phone because two keys on my hard keyboard stopped working. Before going to the Verizon store, I bought ($4.95) and installed MyBackup Pro, and backed up my apps and the data to the SD card. I put the original card in the new phone. When first powered on, I had to enter my GMail credentials, but seconds after that MyBackup took over and restored just about everything. Call log, SMS messages, app settings, just about everything. I had a little hillarity with my POP3 and Exchange e-mail accounts, but that was minor and might've been me not following directions. Certainly worth the $5.

    I have Mybackup Pro and was wondering how well it works. I plan to upgrade to the Droid 2 next November so want to make sure I can easily do that. Do you use the MyBackup Pro online backups or the SD card? Would be nice if you could do both.
