    Default backup

    Google backup on my nexus 4 doesn't capture all my 'people' contacts. Does helium or G cloud backup do it? I am thinking of trading up to a nexus 5 but don't want to risk losing some of my contacts.

    Welcome to AC
    Do you have contacts checked to sync for your Google account? It should be backing all of them up. You can go through your contacts and see which ones are linked to your account.

    Hello. They will do it, but you might need the premium version for Helium if you want to upload it to the cloud. I suggest you try idrive cloud backup. That will backup contacts, sms, etc., and you can sync it to multiple devices.

Open source, powerful, end-to-end encryption, enhanced by Droplr and Amazon's Secure Content Distribution Network. Best of all, it's 100% free. All built by me. Get ready to rock!
