Thanks Rick

Your best bet is to sign up for Microsoft MyPhone (see here) - you can then backup/sync all the mesages, contacts, etc. on the phone. Once you've done the update, re-install MyPhone again (unless the update already includes it - some ROMs do) and sync everything back to the phone.

Hope that helps,

Mark.

(There's also a program called PPCPimBackup - get it from http://www.dotfred.net - that does pretty much the same thing; it creates a backup of messages, contacts, call log, etc. that you can save on the storage card and then restore after the update. ONLY ONE PROBLEM......sometimes there are problems when restoring the SMS messages from the backup, especially when later versions of the HTC threaded messaging are being used.....use PPCPimBackup to backup/restore everything EXCEPT the SMS messages and use MS MyPhone for those.....)
