    Hello all...so on my Priv I have text messages, contacts, photos, etc. Most important are the contacts, and inside many of the contacts, I have "notes" (in that "notes" section). The notes have important information. Yes, the photos are important too.

    So, can I back-up ALL of this data? Forget for the time being about "restoring" it or "transferring" it to another phone/mobile device...can I just back it up...say to a MicroSD card or some sort?

    VZW offers backup to their cloud, but I don't trust it...it's never worked well for me...and it seems to only backup some data.

    Can ALL of the data be backed up to a laptop's hard-drive?

    Thank you in advance.

    Any help here? In the old days, we used to use BB Desktop Manager...oh, do I miss the old days, LOL.

    So, how does everyone back-up their data? Other than the cloud? Thank you.

    Huh? Sorry...so you back up to the cloud, computer or Google cloud?

    OK...do you need software to back up to your computer? Does this back up everything? All data? Can you give me some details on this?

    Thank you.

    @Bla1ze ?

    I personally just go into settings and backup to my Google Drive account.

    That alone should save the phone calls, text messages, app data, device settings and photos/videos.

    If you go into Settings -> Accounts -> Google, you should see more backup options depending on which of Google's apps you have installed
