I understand that these questions have probably been asked before but I was unable to find any answers I was satisfied with from the recommended links (nice feature btw). 1. Backup I updated to the latest Orange ROM recently without considering what I would loose and found that I missed my apps and messages. Is there a free backup app which doesn't require root access (grr) to work? 2. Apps / Marketplace - not showing up Since updating I have been unable to find many of the apps I previously downloaded in the marketplace. Is there a fix for this yet as i have paid for a couple of games and i'm not able to play them now. This seems stupid to me. From what I have read the companies blame the App makers and the app makers are saying it is out of their control. Any resolution to this? or have I missed something? 3. Rooting I have seen enough information about what I will gain from rooting my phone but what will I lose?
