    My iPhone contract is up and I'm seriously checking out the HTC droid incredible. My main hang up is that I really like that when I plug my iPhone into my laptop, it automatically backs everything up, do droid phones have a similar feature? or is the a free/cheap program that would accomplish this?

    Thanks

    There's an app for Android called "MyBackUpPro".
    You can schedule daily, weekly, monthly backups of all apps and data.... to your SD card or to a web server.

    Do yourself a favor and do not waste your money on the Incredible, it is crap compared to the Droid.

    It uses and SD card, so it's easy as drag and drop. There are also programs for transferring from iTunes and what not. I'm drawing a big blank on the app name. I'm sure someone will remember it. :)

    This could go on for hours.....

    IMO....

    Root capabilities. (While the Inc. has root access now, there are still no ROMs for it)
    HTC Sense UI IMO is fluff, and not needed. Your opinion may vary.
    Can overclock the Droid to 1.25ghz stable.
    Droid (Moto) has a dedicated GPU on top of it's CPU, Incredible only has a CPU.
    Moto build quality > HTC build quality.
    Droid screen display is better (I'm not a fan of the AMOLED displays anyhow)

    etc... etc...

    Droid Incredible is a great phone however. It depends what you want out of your device. All I can recommend is do some digging in the forums and see what catches your eye. Then see what device best fits your need.

    what do you mean backs up "everything" ?

    Most things are synced on Android and don't require connecting to a PC to backup

    Well Martin answered all the things I would have said, in a much nicer tongue than I would have said it. In addition to his/my opinion, I am also just plain tired of HTC's overpriced garbage, they offer far inferior product for far more cost.

    And yeah I mean Motorola Droid, that usually goes without saying as how HTC is not the original Droid.

    Pictures and notes would be on your microSD card.

    Calender and contacts are sync'd up through GMail.


    No backing up necessary for those points.
