Hmm... seems sort of unnecessary to keep backing up every time I sync, then. Considering that my address book is already backed up in the form of it being my outlook address book, and that most of my apps are games, so the content within them isn't that important. (I'm not really sure 30 minute backups to keep my tetris score are worth it). I think I've also heard that it somehow keeps previous (deleted) notes and texts... which I not only don't care to backup... but sort of think is creepy/weird that the iPhone doesn't "permanently" delete that information when you hit delete on your iPhone. I think the only thing making a backup would help with is if I had to get my iPhone serviced (i.e. i dropped it on the floor), or if I got a replacement phone (which I would probably never do, since I'm under contract and getting a new phone if I lose mine would probably cost in excess of $400). So yeah, I'll probably ditch the 30-minute backups form now on. Thanks for your help.
