    Default Backup & Restore on Nexus 4 with Straight Talk

    Since I am using my Nexus 4 un-rooted on Straight Talk, I can't do my backups to my Google account as I would probably exceed my monthly data allowance each time. It seems the native Android Backup and Restore only works through the Google account. What apps are out there are best to do backups to a USB external drive.

    Have you tried? If you are referring to the section under settings>backup & reset>back up my data and automatic restore, it would surprise me if that type of backing up would cause any issues with ST. It's just backing up stuff like your wifi settings, searches you have added to Places/Maps and pictures associated with contacts. It's not like backing up a big file that is a mirror of your phone.

    As far as a more substantial backup, you can use the new Carbon backup to back up a non rooted device, have the backup stored locally on the phone (on the virtual sd card), then, if the size of that backup takes up more space than you want taken, you can plug into your pc and cut/paste the backup files to your pc.

    Do you have access to wifi for your backups?

    No DSL available. Also no cable. Only AT&T broadband, which is also metered.
