Have your contacts, call logs and text messages backed up from an Android device is one of the most essential things. It’s even more important if you happen to be a phone freak who loves to change a smartphone every other day. And if you’re one of the power users who can’t live without flashing a custom ROM every second hour, then having your important stuff backed up is going to keep you at a very secure end. Earlier, we posted the tutorials to backup Contacts, Call Logs, SMS Messages and other important data. The guides posted earlier were individual. The methods posted earlier were pretty helpful for the Android power users and other average Android users, but our viewers wanted a more convenient method to backup each and everything in one go rather then using different methods for everything. While finding a more convenient method I came across Easy Backup & Restore application. The application does what its name suggests.
Using Easy Backup & Restore, you can backup your important contacts, call logs, sms messages, mms, calendar entries, bookmarks, dictionary hits. To backup the aforementioned stuff, you do not need root access. You can simply backup this primarily important data in just a few taps without any hiccups using this application. We’ve given this application a try and found it working pretty well and for that reason we are going to take you through a comprehensive guide to help you backup and restore your important data. Let’s move ahead to backup & restore important call logs, contacts, sms messages and other data using Easy Backup & Restore.
Easy Backup & Restore also offers app backup, but for that you need root access. We’ve talked about app backup in our Titanium Backup guide, so in the succeeding post we will talk about SMS, Contacts, Call Logs etc.
