My home computer had a hard drive crash and I can't replace it immediately. Is there any other way I can back up my iPhone and get updates?

Which phone and firmware?
If its got IOS 5 then you can do updates over the air, if you mean firmware updates.

If you do have the latest firmware it should be IOS 5 or 5.0.1
What updates are you wanting to get?

It's 5.0.1. I don't think I need any immediate updates but it may be a while before I can replace my home computer. What can I do if I need one before then?

Do you have a wifi connection? If there are any updates you can do them over the air in IOS 5.
Settings, general, software updates. Of they are updates to apps, you can just get them from the app store.
