Hi @DarkElf, welcome to the forum!
If you accidentally disabled a required permission for the Contacts app you can enable it again in Settings > Apps > Contact > Permission.
I hope this helps and let me know if you have any additional questions related to this.
Hi @roxane, that is correct, you don't need to remove your SIM card from the device while you are overseas, you can instead enable airplane mode.
In Airplane mode, the network and radio transceivers are turned off to prevent disturbance to sensitive equipment.
This means that you will not be able to to the following things while airplane mode is activated.
I hope that helps and have a nice trip!
@maksjoodwhoops, I had a connection problem, pressed back and then "submit" without checking if the comment content got saved, sorry ^^
as far as I know it's the quickest way to toggle data on and off. I know there used to be some widgets in Play Store that you could toggle data with after tapping them, but I'm not sure if they work on recent Android versions (post-Kitkat).
I found a solution on my own.
I used Sony Companion software to reinstall Xperia software (basically reinstalled everything and deleted all apps etc in the process). What I discovered was that the Xperia apps that came with the phone did NOT have the proper permissions set up to allow access to the different parts needed to perform a backup...so, for another noob user such as myself who has this problem - check your app permissions if you can't perform a backup!
