Backing up phone data

Backing up phone data

Your phone has been set to automatically back up certain data and settings to your microSD card, such as your bookmarks and Wi-Fi passwords.

Your phone backs up the following types of data and settings whenever there are new additions or changes:

  • Text and multimedia messages
  • Settings in the Messages application
  • Web bookmarks
  • Keyboard dictionary
  • Settings in your phone that fall under these categories:
    • Wireless & networks
    • Sound & display
    • Location
    • Applications
    • Date & time
    • Language & keyboard - only the Locale setting

After you do a factory reset or upgrade the phone software, your phone will restart and let you restore the saved data and settings in your storage card back to your phone.

  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings.
  2. Scroll down the screen, and then tap Privacy > Back up my data.
  3. Select or clear the Back up my data check box to turn automatic backup on or off.
