Re: Corrections about Kies and backup/restore options.

Things have changed with the iPhones - until recently, the only on-line service was a paid option (which I didn't want), and iTunes would not backup music and movies. Note that this doesn't means that the music and movies weren't stored on the computer, but if you had several thousand tracks on your computer and had selected several hundred for your phone, you couldn't use iTunes to keep track of what you wanted on the phone and would have to manually select them again after a restore.

With Android, you can just copy over the music folder from the phone to a computer or memory card.
