The general rule on backups (phone, computer, whatever) is that frequency of backup depends upon how much you don't mind losing. If you don't mind losing everything, then you don't need to backup often. On the other hand, if you need or want what's on your phone, do regular backups and additional backups prior to making any changes (upgrades) to your phone or anytime you make a lot of updates to calendar, contacts, etc.
I do backups weekly plus prior to all upgrades. Also backup when I cleanup my Outlook calendar or contacts (such as when I changed jobs).
Backups not stored on media card but on computer.
