1. IPHONE AND IPOD TOUCH HACKING BASICS > 6. Back Up Your iPhone’s Files

Back Up Your iPhone’s Files

You’ll kick yourself later if you don’t!

Your iPhone most likely contains valuable information that would be tragic to lose. In fact, many people rarely connect their iPhones—or iPods, for that matter—to their computer—once they do the initial load of contacts, music, and pictures. Plus, with the iPhone’s own 3G/Wi-Fi connectivity, integrated iTunes and App Store, and now, push email features, there’s almost no reason to plug the iPhone back into the computer.

Except for one reason: backups.

Unlike in a corporate IT environment, you probably don’t have a system administrator backing up your phone each night. And if you’re like millions of iPhone users, your techie friend helped you unlock it so that you could use T-Mobile about six months ago and you’ve been afraid to mess with it, but you want to make sure you don’t lose your chat history and your pictures.
