    No, you will backup your current phone state after sp recovery is installed.

    Be careful, I rooted my droid and installed 2.1. Now my bluetooth doesn't work properly.

    Your contacts will be safe, they are in your gmail account, synced between phone and the web.

    Yes it does delete stuff, but nothing you will notice by only rooting. Visit the hacking section and read the sticky threads until you understand how to root, how to make backups in case something goes wrong, and decide what you are rooting for so you can take a good path to get you your desired results.

    What rom are you running and what function/task were you unable to do via BT? I had several 2.1 roms and my BT worked.
