Best "FREE" is iTunes. It does everything you want, and if the phone is damaged somehow, the new phone can restore from the backup very quickly. It backs up your whole phone.  I have done this.

Camera roll should be backed up with the CD window to your computer. Apple treats camera roll differently.

Sorry, I forgot to mention, aside from iTunes, Mr. John, are there any other FREE software out there?

I have not seen anything and iTunes is well mated to iPhone.  If you Google for "back up iPhone" all the answers use iTunes.

For just Documents (not music or your whole phone), I use Dropbox in addition to iTunes.

You can have a look at Sync iOS: http://www.syncios.com/features.html

I've used CopyTrans in the past as well but it's not free: http://www.copytrans.net/

Hi VB ITS, I found Syncios is ok, but I can't find how to backup the contact numbers. Is it possible to backup contact numbers?

If you will not use iTunes, you can use Companionlink to sync Calendar, Contacts, and Notes. I have used this and it works. Then you can use the other products to sync the rest.
