    Hello friend,

    Just sync your contacts with the Google account linked to your device.
    You can just restore them on another android device by signing with same account.

    To backup your Messages, use SMS Backup & Restore.
    They are saved in your SD card and can be restored in another android device.

    Use Titanium Backup to backup apps and their settings.
    Even they are stored on the SD card and can be restored later.

    After backing everything up and before exchanging your device, don't forget to perform a Factory Data reset to protect personal data.
    Go to:
    - Settings.
    - Privacy.
    - Factory reset.
    - Fill in details and reset your device.

    Regards!

    You can make a backup by Rooting your phone. But it is also possible without
    rooting your phone. For you required some app for doing it.

    There are some backup applications that let you back up things like contacts,
    SMS messages, settings, etc, but to do a full backup of the phone you would
    need to root it. Doing a factory reset will restore the phone back to its original
    condition, but you would then loose all the settings, messages, call history and
    so on.

    You can use one of the followings:-
    1. TyTN II
    2. IMO
    3. CoPilot

    There are three application you can depend on for backing up your data.
    1. "Titanium backup"(requires root) for backing up applications and application data.
    2. "Sms backup and restore" for backing up messages to your Sd card for future use.
    3. "Contacts" This can be restored by use of default contacts applications in your phone navigate to "contacts" press menu button and then "Import\Export to Sd card" this will help you backing up your contacts.
    4. In order to backup your calender events sync with your Google account.

    PS: Backing up of applications is not advisable if you are changing phone accidental back up of system apps may cause problems so individual restore is recommended if you have notes and other stuffs.

    Its really simple to have a backup of your data from your phone ...

    For this just follow simple steps given below :

    - Firstly make sure that you have desktop manager or PC suite downloaded and installed on your pc
    - After confirming that just connect your phone with the pc using a usb cable
    - Then open desktop manager or PC suite software into your pc
    - There you will find an option saying backup and restore .... Just click it
    - After clicking you can simply select which data you want to backup like messages , organizer data , fonts , saved searches , internet bookmarks , etc
    - Just select these and then click backup to take a backup of the selected data ....
    - If you want to restore that data in future then you just have to click on restore into the desktop manager instead of backup and then select the backup file from the computer and click ok to restore ..
