    Is this different than any other phone? I ask because I am not an Apple person, so maybe that loads it onto some giant massive land where you can find it even if your phone goes through the washing machine.

    Among other ways, when you connect your iPhone to your laptop/desktop, it will sync your music, apps, contacts, etc. to the computer. If something happens to that info on either device, you can restore to the last sync.

    Cool. That's what I was asking. Thanks!

    You can also set up your Google Docs spreadsheet to be viewable by coworkers. Not sure how big your shop is, flex, but then you guys can all pool together your info.

    As did I, but this is worse.

    Good luck in recovery mode.

    I usually just save everything in google docs, that way I have access no matter where I am.

    My contacts are all in my Google address book, which syncs with my iPhone thanks to Microsoft Exchange-style functionality. Highly recommend it, works amazingly well for me.

    And I'll take this moment to issue a PSA about backups:

    Do your backups. Set an alert in your calendar (on your computer or phone) and take 15 minutes a month to back up all your stuff to an external drive or burn a disc. Do this for your home and work computers, and your phone. Don't forget to back up your e-mail, too, if you use an e-mail client.

    Not necessarily "better yet." A doc such as that can be lost or ruined with a couple of errant keystrokes. Mailing to yourself leaves backups in place as old pieces of mail. Don't learn the hard way like I did, and like others apparently have.
