    I just bought SPB Backup, and now it looks like I cant backup my contacts. thats ALL I want to backup right now, and do a fresh install of the system. I dont want to have to re-input my ~70 contacts AGAIN (had to do it last week after a crash which needed a hard reset)

    Help please.

    also, I have read that you can use Outlook to sync contacts. I dont want that though. All I use my contacts for are the phone. I use Gmail for all my email purposes.

    If you do a hotsync, it will back up everything on the phone.

    I use Missing Sync, and no it does not sync the contacts.

    you can always back them up to a exchange server thats what i do. and there is a free one which will work perfect. just follow the tutorial made by wideawake from ppcgeeks.com

    1. Go and sign up for an account via this link http://live.mail2web.com/

    2. Once you have signed up then take your ppc and go to start/programs/activsync/menu in the bottom left corner/ now select configure server

    3. In the server address box put in mobile.exchange.mail2web.com and check the box that says this server requires and encrypted (SSL) connection.

    4. Hit next in the user name box put your username@mail2web.com, password, and in the domain box put ad2. You can go to advanced to setup if u want it to replace item on device and an option for event logging. You don’t have to mess with these settings unless you want to.

    5. Click next and select whatever you would like the device to sync with the exchange server. I sync everything cause if I’m out and about and I have troubles I can hard reset and sync my contacts, calendar, email, and tasks right on the spot.

    6. Click finish, now go to menu/schedule/ in the peak and off peak boxes select as items arrive, now set the other setting to how you want.

    7. You’re DONE! Enjoy your new direct push mail.

    NOTE: I recommend this service for people that live in an EVDO coverage until they fix the pinging. Cause when in a 1x coverage area it pings the server every 60 seconds just to keep the connection alive. And if you’re in a nonEVDO area this will cause you to miss calls all the time. Hopefully they will fix this soon. Supposedly they are working on this.
