    You probably you will lose all your data backing up your applications can be done using an application by name Titanium Backup(requires root access) which can be found in play store. Backing up your contacts can be done either via your google account by sync or exporting them to your SD card this can be found in contacts which will be present in contacts by pressing menu button and then you can see an option as backup in that export contacts to SD card. To backup your messages SMS Backup&restore is an application which can be found in the market and this can also be done by option the application. Also many other applications can be found in market but these have never failed me in my backups.

    Dear Friend..

    There is no need to worry about this.
    Not even a single file gonna miss when you upgrade your device but the icons of post installed apps could be deleted because they are on the screen.

    The things you need to follow are:-

    1. Just remove your memory card first and before doing upgrade, move all your files in your memory card.
    2. Now you start your upgradation process.
    3. When the upgrade process finished, then put your memory card in your mobile and start your device.
    4. Now check the home screen that whether it have those icons or not,
    5. If the icons are there, then there is no issue, but if the home screen gets empty, then move all your pre and post installed apps in your mobile and send all your favorite and selected apps to the home screen,.

    From this way, you cab save your files from deletion and there is no need to back-up.

    Hope this helps somewhat,
    Thanks..

    hey friend ..

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

    For this just follow simple steps given below :

    - Firstly make sure that you have desktop manager or software using which you connect phone with PC downloaded and installed on your pc
    - After confirming that just connect your phone with the pc using a usb cable
    - Then open software you are using to connect phone with 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 option into the software which you use to connect phone with PC instead of backup and then select the backup file from the computer and click ok to restore ..

    hope i helped
    thanks
