Re: Alternatives on How to backup Xperias

Hi,

 

I have both these boxes ticked. Does this mean that my phone is backed up anyhow? Plus, I believe my contacts are stored on my SIM card so I don't need to back them up on gmail. Is that correct?

Re: Alternatives on How to backup Xperias

When I click on menu from phone book, I only get the option to Export to:
SIM card

Internal storage

SD card

USB Storage (if I am plugged into a PC I guess)

 

Shall I just export to SIM card?

Re: Alternatives on How to backup Xperias

Many thanks Uliwooly-wooly for all this info! I have the back-up settings ticked, but I don't understand where all my stuff ends up when it's backed up to Google? My Google account consists of 3 email addresses & a couple of Google pages.

 

The things I would really like to back up are also not so much the contacts etc, but all my Notes + photos. Yes of course I have my photos in several other places but they're all over the place & it would be very time-consuming to go & fetch them all again.

 

(NB: I might pick your brains separately over a suitable upgrade to an Xperia S!)
