    Moved from an iPhone and have a question on back-ups.

    I've used Kies and it managed to backup my settings - although it took ages. However Kies crashes every time I try to back up my apps.

    Can someone suggest an alternative backup method?

    I use Titanium Backup but you'll have to wait until your phone is rooted to use it. It does an excellent job.

    But what if I don't want to root?

    Is there any major benefit to root?

    Try Appbrain app market with your gmail login.

    There is also an option on the phone to backup to google.

    Well a few things would be...

    1) You would be able to use Titanium Backup and other root only apps
    2) Flash new roms/updates to your phone
    3) Complete customization
    4) Update radios/kernels

    There will probably be a very easy step by step process out in the next couple of weeks that will allow you to gain root access. And worst case, you can always revert back to your stock settings before you rooted.
