    My phone has been acting up strange past week now. my facebook barley updates, i dont get emails anymore, my market place wont download or update anything. and some games crash.

    im not sure if wiping my phone is the best idea but i need some advice.

    whats the best way to go about this. i just wanna know..
    -will my paid apps be downloadable again?
    - will my contacts save
    - my download pics, videos be saved.
    - froyo will still be on the device with everything back to stock?

    thats all i really want to know any other pointers will help.

    I just went through this and here is the best way I would suggest:

    Use MyBackup to backup all your phone settings, mms, sms ect.
    Gmail will automatically backup all your email and contacts.
    Use AppBrain to sync all your apps. This way when you re-load all your apps they will show as downloaded in the market and you will get updates.
    All your paid apps will show as paid and will be downloadable.

    You wont lose anything on your SD card.
    Froyo will still be on your phone after a wipe.
