    Cant hurt to back up stuff. Mail, contacts, and paid apps are stored in the cloud. Other apps and settings will require the use of Titanium backup, or simple patience to restore if things get botched.

    unless you flash to 2.01 or have sprecovery you will not be able to use that method if you have the standard 2.1.
