    I don't use MobileMe to synch my safari bookmarks between desktop and iphone because I prefer to use different sets of bookmarks for each.

    So is there any other mechanism for backing up my iphone bookmarks? (e.g. in case I ever lose the phone)

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I know with a JB iphone you can ssh to /private/var/mobile/library/safari and save the bookmarks.db file and then copy it back after you update or restore.

    Yeah, but mine's not JB (thanks, though).

    Anything else?

    Use XMARKS... download it here:

    I am synching my bookmarks between Safari and Firefox on 2 machines with a remote MobileMe synch to iPhone... works a charm.
