    Rooting and using Titanium Backup is the easiest way to backup all of your apps and settings. Z4root is a market app that will do it in one click.

    Download the app, root, use Ti Backup to back up the apps, then use the app to unroot, and uninstall the app again. Boom, fresh, unrooted phone ready to send back.

    Sorry, don't know of any other good way.

    Your contacts are backed up with your gmail account, so as long as you set up your new phone with the same account, you'll be fine. As far as apps, AppBrain allows you to sync your apps so you can easily restore all of them on a new phone.
