    After going from an iPhone 3Gs>4>5 and restoring to each phone the previous backups plus upgrading iOS each time I'm wanting to completely erase my iPhone 5 and start over WITHOUT restoring the backup (phone is acting buggy, slow, battery life has started to be bad, I have accumulated too many Apps that I don't use, etc etc)

    I know I will need a 3rd party app to be able to backup and save my text messages to my computer and I will lose them on my phone, I am fine with that.

    What's the easiest way to backup my:

    1) Contacts
    2) Photos

    I would like to put those back on my phone and then re-download Apps as I need them.

    Thanks in advance !
