    Just got my EVO, coming from a Palm Pre. Anyone know if the EVO has an "over the air" contact recovery option like the Pre does?

    Been having a lot of terrible issues with my EVO the past day or two, and would like to try a hard reset before taking it back. However, the HTC Sync software refuses to work with my Win 7 PC. Keeps telling me it can't open because it's missing a file, and to try re-installing. So, I uninstall, delete the file and try it again...same issue. I don't want to lose my contacts, but not being able to use ANY GPS/Navigation related apps is really starting to make me wanna snap the phone in 2.

    Or, if not over the air, any other backup apps out there anyone can recommend?

    If your contacts are saved in your google email account then they are backed up there and will just reload once you sign into gmail again after the reset. Also, WaveSecure is a pretty cool app that also offers contact backups as well as some other neat stuff.
