    Contacts and texts are easy. My Phone Explorer. Sync them and MPE will have all the contacts and texts on your phone (which you can sync back to another phone).

    For apps, just use a backup program that creates apk files. An apk is an installation file for the app - run it and the app gets installed on whichever phone you're running it on.

    To save the data grom your apps, Helium should do it. If the phone's not rooted, you'll need to run an app on your PC to get Helium running. The program, running in the phone, will email you a link to the PC program.

    Unless your phone is rooted, you can't save "everything" from your phone because some parts of the internal filesystem are only accessible by root.

    I use MyBackuPro all the time and while it saves a LOT of stuff, it does not save everything.
