    Im still not sure if it's worth me doing ICS (orange UK) upgrade, or even if I can yet but what I want to know sounds really thick.
    How do I back up the phone? I'm so untechy it's a miracle I can turn a smartphone on and off so any help will have to be a real .....For Dummies type answer.
    Is it possible to back it up so that I can just put everything back how it is now?
    I'd like my phone to stay the same to look at etc but have the new stuff in it.

    Cheers folks

    As you're not techy, you're probably not rooted so try My Backup Pro from the market. There's a free version and a paid version. Not sure what the difference is but it backs up pretty much everything that can be backed up without being rooted.

    On the off chance you are rooted Titanium Backup is the defacto backup solution.

    Can't advise on ICS on Orange. I'm with O2 :)

    I have a (possibly) hypothetical question.
    Now, lets just say that I had *ahem some pictures on my phone hidden in Vaulty. I've just tried pulling my card out to see is these (possibly) made up pictures are on the card or in the phone. They are still showing when I open Vaulty (or would be if they were real) so when I do a backup will they be saved as they are or do I have to unhide them and put them into a new folder, move the folder to pc then move it back after an upgrade?
    Thanks in advance.;):rolleyes:

    Since I haven't used Vaulty I can't be sure whether a backup would backup the files or not.
    To be safe just unhide, copy to PC, Do your backup, and whenever you restore just copy the files back and hide again.
