    I am about to start to root my phone. I have backup using App Monster. Does that mean all the contacts are also backed up?

    thanks

    If you sync your contacts with Gmail you don't need to back them up,they'll sync automatically.

    If not use Mybackup pro.

    Export it to your sd card or sim then import it back once you rooted and added custom rom. I did that after I cudnt sync contacts on gmail it worked like a charm

    If you have any doubt, just install Mybackup and use that. Having 2 backups won't hurt, not having one will.

    The 30 day free version will do for this, though I bought the paid version, Mybackup Pro.
