    a data wipe is really not a big deal unless you are worried about loosing game data.

    once you sign into your google accnt. during the setup of the phone, all your apps, and contacts will sync right up.

    there are apps to backup SMS conversations and call history

    its really not a huge deal to me, but i have done it about 200 times so i am getting good at it.

    If you are not willing to do the small amount of work required to gain root then its a good idea to walk away.
