I have a Motorola G 4G phone and I had a scare last night when it locked. It was just right out of power in the end and it is okay now but it brought home the fact that I would be buggered if I lost all the data.

As it is an Android system I was looking at how to backup my contact list to Gmail or somewhere safe. The procedures I found online required you to download a bit of software and I was worried in case it was some form of data fishing scam.

I am sure someone who knows what they are doing could guide me through the safest way to do this please. Remote storage would be good in case the phone got lost, nicked or destroyed.

Many thanks

DWD

My phone is the G2, just done a reset this morning.
If you have a google account then it should automatically backup apps & contacts

Thanks Dave, I did a bit more digging and found them all already synced in Google contacts. Now I know where to look if the worst should happen. I found the photos as well.

Cheers
