    I need to get a new Moto Droid to replace my existing one, as it is acting up. How do I get my existing apps and contacts transferred over to my new phone? Do I have to start all over again? Thanks!

    Your contacts and apps are automatically synced with your gmail account. You may have to re-download all your apps from the market but they will all be there!

    Your contacts will be synced to your new phone once you set it up. You might have to redownload apps from the market, but anything you purchased, you will not have to again.

    There might be an app that can back up apps/settings on your phone but I'm not sure?

    Actually you will find all your paid apps in the download folder of the Market. Any unpaid apps you will have to find and download again. As the previous poster said contacts are backed up by Google.

    So, for example, my Financisto data, or my favorites on my ringtones, will those be saved, or will I lose all that data and have to re-enter all of it when I download the apps to my new phone? Thanks!

    There is an app, called app manager that will back up all of your apps to your sd card and restore them as well.

    Or if you are rooted you can create a nandroid backup then restore it and not have to do anything else.

    You can also look at MyBackup Pro and/or Titanium Backup if your rooted.

    This worked perfectly ...

    Download MyBackupPro

    Back your apps and contacts, just check all the boxes.

    Backup to the SD card.

    Also open your list of contacts, and Export them to the SD card.

    I also copy everything from my SD card to a computer as an additional backup every few weeks.

    When you get the new phone, have them swap SD cards.

    Now download MyBackupPro again and restore from the card.

    If the contacts don't properly restore, then IMPORT from the SD card.

    Worked perfectly for me.

    Remember to backup your contacts in TWO ways, as explained above.

    Google contacts restore may or may not work. Don't depend on it.

    Just wondering, when you bring your apps back with MyBackupPro do you lose all of your settings and saved data? Or will it back that up too?

    I would say 90 % + is saved. Maybe 100%.

    Tried to restore contacts from google and had a mess that look a lot of time to clean up.
