    Contacts: Will already be synced with your Google account. You can check by logging into Gmail - Click "Gmail" - Click "Contacts".
    Text messages: SMS Backup+ on your handset. Click "Backup" - once done, it'll sync with "mothership" ever 2 hours. When you get your handset back, click "Restore"
    Apps: Already synced with your google account. When you get your handset back, they'll be reinstalled.
    Images / music files: Connect handset to a laptop / PC. Then, copy files to PC. when you get your handset back, copy them back

    Did that when I factory reset my samsung note, so easy I was amazed, just need to sign in with your Google account and it does everything else.

    I set up three android devices this afternoon, 2 phones and a tablet. just log into your google account and if the phone is new or reset it asks if you want to restore from an automatic backup. So I have all the same apps and contacts on all my android devices
