So I've been having an issue with my Evo and the tech ppl at local Sprint Store recommended a hard reset to try and clear it up. All my apps were purchased through the Market, so no worries there. Calendars and contacts are on Google, so no worries there either. I've backed up everything on my SD card to my PC. And, I've saved the layout for each of my homescreens so I can (somewhat) easily restore everything without having to remember what was where. Will I lose anything after the hard reset? Will App settings be restored when the apps are reloaded on the phone? I'm guessing I'll lose all my texts, but I don't really care about that. I don't much care about losing the call history either. I'm not rooted (and not really interested in doing so), and from what I've seen in a few threads, the good backup apps tend to require it to work. I realize I probably won't be able to recover everything, and I can deal with that (assuming it actually fixes my problem), but I'm trying to save as much as I can on my own.
