How do i backup the iphone settings and content before i do a synchronize?

Nokia has got something like total back up, where by u can select the fields to be backed up and it gets consolidated into a file?

iTunes automatically backs up every thing when you sync. You can see it in the top bar...

i believe sync n backup are two different processes.

unlike the other phone manufacturers, apple doesnt allow us to set actually the direction of sync.( ie phone to pc, pc to phone, etc)

even after authorizing a new pc, and when i connect the phone, i find my grid views change and i have to manually drop back the application to my phone.

secondly, the direction of the contacts isnt clear.

if it had an option for backing up all the contents into a file, it would have been easier to restore them according to one's choice...cos this sync is so unpredictable.

Sync and backup are tww different things. When you sync everything gets backed up. If you want to just backup right click your phone in the iTunes menu...
