Curious as to what others do.  When you add a contact do you save to the phone, SIM or something like a google account?  I have searched this for a bit and can't quite find the answer I'm looking for.  What is the difference on where you are saving a contact?  I'm guessing that if you save it to one area it can be sync'd and saved to others? 

If you eventually update your phone i.e 2.2 then would you loose those contacts and have to put them all back in?  Thinking that if you save it to your SIM then you might not have to input all your contacts again and if you ever wanted to change phones they would be saved there?  Am i understanding this correctly?

SIM - Limited contacts that can be saved, flashing does not remove them, but if you lose your phone, that's it
Phone - Unlimited but if you lose it or it bricks, that's it
Google/Exchange contacts - All saved online, if you change phone or lose it or reflash it, you can always sync back to it, cons is you can't group it on the phone

Having all your data wiped occurred before but not with 2.2, although, it's always safer to backup your data with some sort of backup program that allows you to backup to sd card and/or online JUST IN CASE.

The sim option is best if you plan on switching phones often or in the future as it's the least troublesome because your contacts will automatically be in your next phone. But, as mentioned by Loba, limited number and fields. It'll probably just be Name and Number and not much else.

Yes! saving the contacts onto sim is only limited to name (full name would not fit!) & numbers.

while on the phone you can save as much as you want home number, full name, emails etc..

is there any apps out there to backup-up what apps you dl'ed/installed?
