1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi to all,

    I just ordered my Droid yesterday, but am not a newbie to Android as I've had a G1 for almost a year now. I had great service from T-Mobile but needed to upgrade the phone and Droid is the best with a keyboard. I don't like soft-keyboards but I know the transition is inevitable.

    Has anyone experience with back-up from G1 to Droid using My Backup Pro?

    Welcome welcome, I think you'll like the Droid over the G1, and this forum is full of great help.

    I dont have any experience going from G1 to Droid, but here are my thoughts:

    Contacts: Easy with Google account
    Apps: Just re-download, to prevent screwing stuff up
    SMS/MMS: There are a few apps that will allow you to import/export these as HTML or XML -- use one of those apps -- the less proprietary the backup format, the better off you're going to be
    Other files: Just use a PC to copy them from the G1 to the Droid's SD card.

    MyBackupPro works great, but I fear for you going from one phone to another, you may run into issues.

    Good luck
