I transferred my contacts from my BB to my X. None of the ones that were transferred will sync with gmail contacts, only the ones I enter into my X will sync. Why and how do I get them to sync?
Calendar events sync both ways.
Back up everything as is. I know my contacts are backed up, notes on SD, etc. Just the settings and other 'behind the scenes things' that we work on to get our X's just right.
I had used Sprite backup on a previous phone and it worked perfectly on restore after I had to get a replacement. However, I read somewhere on here that Sprite wasn't working so well on the X.
So, I just wondered if there was just a good backup that covers and restores it all at one time and in one place.
For me, it's all the settings as well as home pages that I would want backed up. My data (contacts, calendar and emails) are in gmail and my apps are in both the Market as well as AppBrain...but the settings. It would probably take me half a day to even try to sit down and remember all the icons I had set up on each page, and there's no way I'd remember all the settings I created over the past few weeks. It would be sweet if there was an app that would back that stuff up. Then you could plug in a replacement and be rolling in minutes. It's about the only thing that I miss from bb.
+1 for settings backup... Recently got stuck in a random reboot loop after I'd had the phone for a week. Sure, I didn't lose anything "important," but it took forever to get things back the way I liked.
My Contacts / Email / Calendar sync with Google. I use AppBrain to keep track of my installed applications. Most of my pics and vids are on the SD card. You can always back those up manually via drag n drop on your pc.
Try My Backup Pro. It backs up either online or to your SD card, which is what I use. It's done in two steps - applications and data. You can schedule to do backups automatically or you can do it manually. Very nice program. Has a restore ability included. Got it from the Market. No problems with it so far. Had it since I got the DX in July.
