That's just not true It backs everything up! Incrementally of course, I'm on a Mac is it different on pc iTunes?

When I had to replace an iPhone I did a backup from previous phone and everything, notes, photos, contacts, apps, messages etc were all put onto the new device from the backup. I have then had to do a full restore and backup numerous times on iPhone due to jailbreak related crashes and it always puts everything back on my phone.

Even accepting people don't want to do a backup why not turn the auto backup off in iTunes?
