    Hi,
    I am a huge Android Forums newbie, but I really needed help with backing up my phone information before hard resetting.
    Basically, the primary email that the phone is running under is an email for a company I no longer work for so I don't have a valid email there. Because I can't log into my work email, I can't log in and download any new application so unless you guys know of a different solution, I guess my only option is to hard reset and then make a new primary account.
    However, I would like to save all my contacts and texts messages [if possible, although I hear it's unlikely], but since I can't download any new applications, I also can't download any storage applications for my phone.

    So how do I proceed?
    Thanks in advance!:)

    I'm wondering if an app like Titanium Backup could back up your data...

    Could I download Titanium backup even though I can't access Appbrain or the android market?

    Theoretically you should be able to side load the app. You'd neev to first go into settings to authorize it to install app's outside of the market. The next challenge would be to find a copy of the Titanium Backup APK online.

    Nandroid Backup 2.0 is the best option i think.
