Sms and mms messages, call history, and settings don't get backed up. It's mostly contacts, I think, that get backed up.
Contacts are backed up in a completely different place/way. What IBT means is if you use the 'supposed' backup settings option in Privacy menu will it actually remember your settings and/or app data. It says it will but like he said, you actually have to go to the privacy menu and tell it to back this stuff up.
@Olbriar - did you use the back up settings option in privacy menu? did it work?
