    I just purchased a Thunderbolt and do not expect to root it until I get used to the phone (switching from a BB Storm2).

    I would like to know the recommendations for a free that will backup the entire contents of my Thunderbolt without rooting it.

    Thanks

    I see some in the Market Place but the ones that sound like they do a complete job seem to indicate that the phone needs to be rooted which I do not want to do until I gey a feel for the phone.

    To backup all apps and their data you will have to be rooted. Backing up contacts though is easily done through your Google account. Apps downloaded through the Market will be backed up there but the data will be lost. Documents and pictures and just about any file could be saved to a cloud service like Dropbox.

    To save your phone exactly as it is and then restore it at a later date requires root.

    My Backup will back up all the apks, SMS messages, emails, etc.... on your phone. To back up all the app data and settings of each app, you'll need root access.
