    KIEs can only backup your calendar, contacts and sms (not too sure about the last one actually). Everything else will be lost. (You might be able to backup notes too, but you won't be able to restore it.)

    Non pre-installed apps can be backed up using Astro File Manager. But for the rest you will need to root your phone and use titanium backup.

    Could you explain "root your phone" and "use Titanium backup". Exactly how do you do this?

    use google to search about rooting your phone
    titanium backup is available in the market , but you need to root first
