Default [Q] How to create back-up of phone, to put on new phone?

Was drinking last night and went outside. Managed to drop my phone face first onto the concrete. The screen is cracked now, but is still functional. So this raises two questions:

1) Before filing insurance claim, should I return phone fully to stock?

2) How should/would I go about backing up my apps, and data, so that when I get the new phone I can just transfer them to it?

Thanks for the help.

Titanium backup (free, from the market) should work for backup.

Both methods offer a restore function. Install the program of your choice, then select restore. keep a copy of your sdcard of course...

thats great- I did not realized you could a nandroid backup and place it on another phone- that would be a nice way to produce some clones!

I've done this before but you have to remember when restoring the backup to the new phone, that the kernel is on the boot partition that is not part of the backup. You have to flash the same kernel you were using on the other phone.
