HTC Desire Backups

I found the manual online the quick start guide that came in the box was poor.

how do i check is backup is enabled? the manual says

"Checking if automatic backup is enabled
Press HOME > MENU, and then tap Settings.
Scroll down the screen, and then tap Privacy > Back up my data.
Make sure that the Back up my data check box is selected"

I get as far as settings but no "privacy" option to tap on, looked around elsewhere on the phone and lost, anyone able to put me right please.

I am thinking of buying this phone an djust wondered if you know if it can sync my Outlook 2000 calendar and contacts? The HTC site seems to say only Outlook 2003 and 2007 but I note on the internet that it will sync. Before I take the plunge I need to know. Have tried emailing HTC 'support' but they seem to ge hedging the question. Will the Desire HD be any better and is it worth waiting for?

Standard fare now to give you a quick guide to get started, then a whole pdf on line, however the online manual is very comprehensive. Just takes a while to scroll through on the Desire though!

the htc web support is out of date so is the pdf manuel and FAQ's they still refer to a prev version of android not the present 2.2 version.

monkeyboy21 - that is what I have found. Their 'support' team do not seem to be up-to-date with their knowledge and that is why I posed my query on this thread. I had somewhere (via google) that it will sync with Outlook 2000 now whereas it only did with versions 2003 and 2007 previously.

i have asked htc if there is any backup, but they seem unable to fully answer

they say
"Privacy option with back up option has been removed in Android 2.2 for further development."

does that mean no backup or backup without the privacy option?
