    The Desktop Manager can sync your contacts with Outlook. I think any version will do it, and if it's the version that came with your storm it will definately do it.

    also if you're just switcing devices, the switch device wizard in the desktop manager will move everything but 3rd party apps and media over to the new phone.

    Sync with outlook though is a nice thing to do. As well as full device backup with the back/restore wizard.

    not necessarily advanced. if you click backup it should just allow you to save to a file.

    to restore you just hit restore and select the file you want to restore.

    If you're doing a full backup you should end up with an .ipd file as the device back up and a .cab file if you opted to have the device onboard memory backed up as well. (in options)
