    I am a diehard Blackberry user. I'm having a hard time letting go of Link, and I can't really figure out how to make sure my phone is backed up. Is there somewhere on Crackberry that has simple instructions for backing up to google?

    I don't know why BB didn't keep something comparable to Link. It's soooo soooo easy!

    The Priv has an automated backup. Tap the gear to get into Settings > Backup & Reset > Turn on backup my data. You can associate the data to your Google account.

    Doesn't back up your texts and emails, emails will prob still be on server, texts, not.
    I'm pretty sure you also have to set your pictures to back up to google separately, and reload them separately.

    And cloud back ups are distrusted by many, not to mention slow.

    SMS backup and restore is a great app for backing up texts. You will also need to export your entries if you use Password keeper. There are several interesting, albeit older, tutorials regarding backing up android devices just a google search away. Haven't tried any of those methods yet.

    Lots of ways to back up and restore this, that or the other.
    Zero ways to back up and restore your phone.

    Thank you! I have this set, but I can't see that it is actually happening anywhere.
