Default Is there a way

To plug the phone into the computer and back up your contacts and phone settings the way you could do with an iphone?

No, there's nothing like iTunes.

But, if you enter all your contacts into Google Contacts and keep that synced up, contacts will always be "backed up".

Also if you use Exchange to get your email, your contacts are backed up there as well most likely. Anytime I get a new phone I just sync with my Exchange server and all my mail, contacts, appointments, etc. are downloaded.

If no Exchange server, Google is the way to go.

You set them to sync in the phone settings, under "Accounts and Sync>Google". If you want to make sure that they synced properly, check your contacts in your Google account and make sure they match the contacts in your phone.

I did but my contacts aren't showing up when I log on to Google. Maybe they're on my sim card and not the actual phone?

So, you didn't enter the contacts into Google online, correct?

They're on your phone?

Go to People > hit the menu button > Import/Export > Export to SD card.

I haven't done this myself, but you'll need to find the file. Hook the phone up to your computer and look for a file that should probably be ".csv" format. You might be able to email it to yourself too, I'm not sure (in order to get the file on your PC)

Then go to that link above and hit the Import button. Upload your .csv and edit as you wish.

Now everybody will be in your Google Contacts and you'll be "backed up" and "synced" for that (possible) replacement phone.
