Just hard reset my EVO. Why dont I ever think first?
Horrible battery life led me to reset my phone, so without thinking, i just reset it. Apps are gone, of course, and i could care less. However, I failed to remember that my contacts would be gone too... So now I have a question. One, is there anyway to save your contacts before a hard reset, and two, should i be adding contacts to my gmail account instead of my phone?

im thinking about doing a reset due to battery life and lagging with the keyboard. For example, when i text somebody in the landscape made then press the home key. Let’s say im going to the internet the page pops up in landscape then goes to vertical when i had it in vertical to start. It seem like when i use the phone with the landscape keyboard then exit and when i go to the text message, internet, anything that can be in landscape it start up in the landscape mode even though im holding it vertically. I started having this problem when i get the 8/3 update. Does anybody have a clue why is that and also a solution?
also, does anybody know how i can backup my apps like 3rd party ups, before i do the hard reset?

- Only Jelly Bean or ICS!
theres a app in market i used,
called My Back Up Pro,
backed up everything from settings, to calender, to sms, to contacts and all apps!
another good thing to do is install google sync, it will sync all your contacts to your gmail and bring them back automatically when you restore.
your paid apps will be saved in market.

The Sense UI on the TP2 that I had would merge the contact info to the Exchange account if it was set to sync contacts. Is there any way to do that with the EVO?
I don't want to add contacts from all of the different accounts to the Exchange account. But specifically if I had linked an exchange and a FB account, the Exchange account would be automatically updated with any additional info from the FB account (Like personal email addresses, and FB Pictures for business contacts that I added to FB).

Or just make them part of your google account...
So everytime you hard reset and re-enter your gmail account, all of your contacts come back immediately.
Titanium Backup for those who are rooted.
Froyo brings back all apps, but not app data.
