    You need to connect your phone to the computer, open itunes, once you see your phone on itunes, you navigate around. Any apps that you have bought/downloaded...they still be there for you. If not you can re-download at no charge.

    An update only updates your software, it does not delete or change anything else. All of your contacts, apps, texts, etc will be completely untouched. As a general rule, it's good to back up your phone before an update in case there are any issues. But those are rare, no need to be concerned.

    He told you above nothing will be lost.
    An update doesn't remove anything from your phone.

    There are apps that can save your contacts if you want to be double protected.
