Need to send phone back for repair

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is basic but wanted to make sure I got it right!

My T-Mobile G1 has stopped working properly - the touchscreen no longer works. I was going to just get a new phone but then I found it out it has a 2 year warranty which has about 1 month left.

They normally work on an exchange basis - but they have none left so they need to take mine away and repair it, so I'll be without for 2 weeks.

I've deleted all the rubbish off the phone, but I'm left with two apps that I've paid for, one could just be freshly reinstalled (copilot) but the other is a game and I would prefer the saved game data.

Is there a way to back these up? and how do you go about reinstalling them later without having to pay for them again?

Otherwise it's just sms messages which would be nice to keep but not essential, and how do you synch the contacts somewhere so they're not lost?

OK found that my calendar and contacts back up to the google mail account I setup when I got the phone (never used since!)

What about the apps?

OK found out that the apps will just reinstall and found out how to backup the data from the game.

Not that bothered about SMS so will just wipe the phone and keep the SD Card out.

They've also offered me an upgrade to the Desire HD for no cost if I take out another 2 years. Just not sure if I'll cope without a keyboard!
