    Default data moving

    Hey Android peeps,
    am currently doing a handset exchange of my M8. have a bad speaker,turns out ,these are VERY hard to repair .my phone guy say's he won't even attempt it on this phone, too much trouble, anyway, my problem is moving my data from one phone to the other the having to wipe the old one. I have the HTC sense app on my computer, I am hoping that is the right way to go,lately my contacts and pics have been doubling and tripling! I thought that was only a Blackberry issue. I am asking how to do the transfer,because I still suck @ Android and am trying to head off a nightmare in the making ! thanks

    I would just connect to your PC, pull all your files, and copy them. As for your contacts, are they saved to Google or on your phone?

    I would export to the sim, but also consider backing up to Google. This way if the sim goes bad, you won't lose every contact.

    Google keeps a copy in the cloud. So in a server somewhere will be a copy of your contacts. This is better than storing them on the device or the sim, because if anything happens to either, your contacts are always retrievable.
