hi guys!

my problem with sudden and unexplained failure to sync over usb should finally be resolved tomorrow with a replacement phone on orangecare (protracted and multilevel data services help getting me to do everything i've already done first - isn't it annoying you also have to pay an administrative fee?!).

But this leaves me with another problem - how do i back up the device to the sd card, bearing in mind i cannot connect to the computer to download new programs even?

i need to keep (in order of importance):

- recent changes to calender not synced in the past three weeks
- recent contacts added
- ?changes to rom (a2dp tweak and gps control panel enablement) (can't remember how i did them now
- omap and battery status today plugin
- sms/mms messages
- installed programs:( (mostly remnants from uninstalled demos)



i have had a play, but cannot find anyway of backing up to sd card built in to orange rom. (other than perhaps beaming each appointment or contact as a vcard to another device (which i don't have)

please help me - they deliver the new phone tomorrow between 1 and 5pm

thanks again

Have you tried Sprite backup? Should be able to do all that I believe (except probably rom changes). It's free to Plus members as well.

Some software stores offer over-the-air installation. You get the cab file delivered via GPRS. As Confucious says, you need something like Sprite Backup - here

Do Spb do one as well ?
Yes, they do !

If you have a card reader you can load the cabs on to there and run them after replacing in your phone.

Sprite will backup all the data on your device include SMS and MMS messages, they are all included in the "Email" directory in the Advanced Mode of Sprite Backup.
