Yeah. Your contacts, apps, Gtalk contacts and emails should be fine. Settings you will have to redo.

I downloaded "My Backup" in Market place. It allows you to backup your settings onto your SD card, you might try that. It will backup most everything if you want to on your card.

I did have to exchange my droid for a battery issue, everything restored automatically except for the phone/app settings. I heard there are apps that will go the entire distance, however.

just make sure you use the same gmail account for the initial setup. I redid mine with a different ID and had to "repurchase" a paid item. I was in the 24hr return window for the first purchase though so it didn't cost me anything extra.

Just a heads up that paid software is tied to your user id and not the device. ;)
