    calling all troops in the know!!!!

    what do i have to do to my hero before the 2.1 upgrade hits the networks?

    1 - my contacts
    2 - my photos
    3 - my apps

    these are the three things i am concerned about?

    do i save them all onto my laptop first? but how do i save the apps to my laptop?

    my phone is not rooted or anything like that, just standard version.

    1) How are the contacts saved? Google contacts get synced to google's servers when you have an internet connection. Sim contacts will be safe too. Only phone ones need to be backed up.

    2)Photos are saved on the SD card and are all safe. The only ones I'm not sure about are contact photos.

    3)Astro can back up all your apps. However, it won't restore the link to the market for the apps. (As far as I know that's only possible with root access).

    I use "My Backup Pro" does backup everything to SD card and also able to backup online....so just wait for the 2.1 - and then ready to go!

    Plus you have about 3 years before HTC releases the 2.1 so no worries, you'll get new handset before then ;)
