    In my house.
    Can anyone recommend a Free backup app for backing up apps and settings to the SD card?

    I am in Canada, and we STILL don't have access to paid apps.

    I keep seeing people recommend "My Backup", but it is only a 30 day trial, which sucks because even if I wanted to buy it after the 30 days... I can't.

    Thanks!

    If you are willing to go through the process of rooting your phone, "backup for root users" works quite nicely.

    "AppManager" is able to copy apps to SD ... but I haven't yet figured out how to copy them back again. :thinking: Also, I don't think it does Settings...

    @cyberbob: No, I'd prefer not to root... yet.

    @KlaymanDK: I'll give it a try! Thanks.

    I just discovered that the "Astro File Manager" does a way better job of it. In the Menu, there's a "Tools" item, where you'll find "Application Manager / Backup". Try that, too.

    Cool. I have Astro File Manager. I'll have to try it. Thanks for the tip!

    You have 2 choices:

    a) buy MyBackup Pro directly from their web site:
    RerWare.com: G1 Android&#8482 Backup Utility

    (no market needed, only google checkout and you will be able to download the .apk file.)

    b) use market-enabler to fake t-mobile settings and get access to full market including paid applications

    market-enabler - Project Hosting on Google Code

    P.S. I'm from Canada too.

    Does market-enabler require that your phone be Rooted? I don't want to root my phone yet.

    Yes, Market Enabler requires rooting to work. It'll run unrooted, but with no effect.
