Defective Shift - What's the best way to back up & restore data on replacement phone?
I've had my Shift for almost a month and love it - unfortunately the only problem I've discovered with it seems to only have one solution: exchanging for a new Shift... Here is the original thread: http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...d-problem.html
I went back to the Sprint store yesterday & they offered to replace it without hesitation, but before I go ahead with the exchange - I'm would like to back up all my data.. SMS, Contacts, Apps, ect..
So far I've gotten these apps from the marketplace: Backup Everything, SMS Backup & Restore, and SMS Backup +.. I've also backed up my contacts to my 16 gig Micro SD card & google & copied all data to a computer...
I'll simply insert the Micro SD card in the replacement phone...
Any feedback on these apps or recommendations of others that may best serve me in my quest to backup & restore all my stuff?
Oh yeah - lastly I must add that due to being a complete Android noob, I would rather not root my phone at the moment...
Thanks in advance!

Here is a good thread on how to backup everything on your Android. Back-up (Almost) Everything Before RUU/Factory Reset - Android Forums I would assume the same principle applies for changing to a new device

i just recently moved all of my contacts to gmail so they could sync with Android phones. as for SMS, i use google voice which also gets restored when i get a new phone. for SMS to my real number, i use SMS backup (gets sent to my gmail). Otherwise, everything else is on my SD Card.
The only thing that annoys me about getting a replacement phone is that i have to set up all my icons and such.
