    This has probably been covered before, but should I create a new profile for updating to 2.1?

    its a pre minus (o2 uk)

    also will i lose everything on the phone if i do upgrade, like sms messages, contacts and photos etc.

    You should follow all directions to the letter here:

    You USB partition (where photos are stored) will be wiped, so you should back up. I don't know if contact photos will be backed up, but contacts can be backed up to Google if you have a Google account.

    I upgraded my O2 UK pre minus and its USB patition was not wiped. My photos and music were left alone at any rate.

    I did lose all my SMS message history though (as expected).

    I did not create a new profile, but on the other hand, I was happy to let the backup application just wipe all the information in it (as per the upgrade instructions). I only have a few notes and tasks so I just typed them back in again afterwards.

    All my contacts and my calendar events are on google and Facebook so I got those back automatically. I bought Music (remix) so the App Catalog definitely still works. The phone was pretty responsive straightaway (linking contacts was quite sluggush, I suppose) but I installed preware and then the UberKernel just because I can really. It was a good move on 1.4.5 so I figured it makes sense.

    I hope that helps.

    Yep, I can confirm that. Just upgraded to webos 2.1.0 on my O2UK pre minus and my USB partition was left intact. But definitely follow the wiki because it does make sense
