    I don't know why your initial backup was so large, but I know when I did a backup with Spb with almost nothing on the phone, it was 4-5mb. I have a ton of stuff installed now, and the backups every night look about 13-15mb. It compresses the image somewhat, I believe, but if you do a complete backup of the phone, and then a complete restore, it shouldn't matter what the size is, as you'll have a total snapshot of your entire system.

    As a point of reference, though, I would only restore an image to the same phone; you also take with you any issues you may have/will have with your registry, file structure, etc. If you don't have much on the phone to begin with, sync your contacts, and when you get your new 700wx, put the contacts back, add programs, and before you do anything else, backup to SD so you have a fresh system backup to go back to. Then you can install whatever you want, and even if you really screw something up and have to hard reset, you won't have to go back "all the way". I backup every night before bed, but I also have a clean system backup file with essential programs and serial numbers/reg codes already in the phone so I can save a ton of time if I need a hard reset on the road.
