Android Phone Backup
Android smartphones are getting placed to be common used in people era nowadays. Filled with valuable email messages, contacts, videos, photos, and documents; everyone wish to preserved all of their phone’s data at one place. So that if they sell it or recycle it — all of their apps, text messages, photos, music and videos – their account information is exist to the new phone’s account.
Android handsets, however, do not have a built-in backup facility but your Google account settings and Gmail messages will all be available when you log on to your account on your new phone.
Backup Your Data to Google Account:
Head over to Settings =>Privacy, and make sure that “Back up my settings” and “Automatic restore” are checked off. Once again, step up further to Settings => Accounts & sync, open your Gmail account, and check off all options. Select all of the option boxes listed, to ensure that all available data is synced.
That said; with these settings in place, your contacts, system settings, apps, calendar, and e-mail will be restored whenever you set up a new Android phone with that same Gmail account.
Backup for SMS/MMS Messages, Apps, Playlists and More:
For data that Google doesn’t directly back up (such as SMS/MMS messages, playlists, and alarms), you can use third-party software. Called MyBackup Pro is best choice to go with. Though the service is not free and it costs $4.99, but you can try it free for a trial period. You can download this app from the Android Market, and then simply launch it to your phone.
Don’t fret! If you’re looking forward for a free app, SMS Backup + is something that you will love to. This free app automatically sends your SMS threads to Gmail and stores them under a new label, “SMS.”
To backup the all stuffs, aforementioned above, to the cloud the inDefend Mobile Backup service is available for free on the Google Play Store too.
Backup Your Photos with These Free Apps:
Let’s automatically upload newly snapped photos in the background to your account; I assume the Photobucket Mobile service for best utility in this case. Other services such as Flickr Companion and Picasa Tool are also free that allow mobile uploading but don’t do so automatically.
Backup Videos, Pictures, and Music Automatically:
Being popular to use this method is AirSync from DoubleTwist, lets sync your data between your computer (Mac or Windows) and your smartphone simply. AirSync can also sync wirelessly over your network.
There is also another service to do the same. Called The Missing Sync for Android, this service will cost you higher than other choices.
For everything else the simplest solution is to use a third-party backup utility. If you have rooted your phone (removed the locks on the operating system) the best option is a free app from Google Play called Titanium Backup.
Drag and drop:
Back up photos from your Android the traditional way. Connect your phone to your computer via USB, set it in Disk Mode and locate the drive (on the desktop for Mac, in My Computer for Windows). Open the drive, find the DCIM folder, and drag the photos you’d like to back up onto your hard drive.
