    My Backup from the market.

    You can back up everything from sms to your home screen.

    The 2.1 update hasn't been wiping anyone's phone, but just in case something goes wrong...

    You'll need to backup everything stored on the phone's internal memory. So your text messages, apps, any contacts saved as 'Phone' contacts (not 'Sim' or 'Google' ones) etc.

    MyBackup Pro is good and has a free 30 day trial you can use.
