    backups everything (including texts currently on your phone). you can access your list of backups by going to itunes -> preferences -> syncing

    now i just need to figure out how to stop where it backups every time i plug it in. it gets old waiting for it.

    Add me to the list of those curious about where those backup's reside. As a matter of fact, I have yet to upgrade my v1 iPhone to 2.0 because I have a string of text messages that I want to keep. If I could find the text messages in a backup file, I'd be a happy camper and make the leap of faith.
