I'm a complete newbie to Android, and am trying to see if there's any way to backup my phone. Unfortunately, I dropped it yesterday and the screen cracked. I'm getting a new one from the insurance people, but want to transfer my data. What I'm concerned with are: Settings (screen layouts, etc.), apps (both paid and free), app data. AFAIK, contacts, calendars, etc. should just auto-sync with Google. Ideally I'd like to just do a backup and restore so that the new phone looks and acts just like my old phone... My understanding is that this can't be done with an un-rooted phone, is that correct? If I was to root it, is there a procedure that works as of the most current patch that doesn't erase data? Thanks, Juliean.
