If you are about to perform an update of the ROM of your device, or are to implement a procedure to obtain root access, you must be concerned about information stored in it, because during these processes it is often lost.

So today in AndroidADN we took on the task of creating a tutorial to see how best to support the content of our device as SMS, Contacts, Apps and Settings.

Backup Contacts

Surely your contacts are the most important data. And although it is possible to make a backup of them to be keeping them in our SIM manually, this often limits the amount of information to keep their name and phone number.

Fortunately Android integrates a tool that allows you to sync contacts with Gmail, which only need to go to the application of Gmail and then Contacts Menu> More> Accounts> Background Data and Auto-sync.

This will create a backup of contacts and will synchronize with the list of contacts from your Gmail account with all data, so that any contact you create in Gmail or your Android will appear on both lists.

Something very annoying to my liking is to be displayed in the list of contacts of which only have email. If this is your case, you may find it useful the option to show only contacts with phone number to which you can access from the settings of your list of contacts> More> Display Options> Only Contacts with phone number.

Backup SMS

Unfortunately Android has no native method to make a backup of your messages, so we must resort to third party applications such as SMS Backup & Restore App.

SMSBackup is an application that allows you to automatically backup your Gmail account from your SMS messages, with the only requirement to create an SMS folder in Gmail to store your SMS. Here´s the link to download from Google Play and here´s the link for the apk. Below is a video tutorial for you to follow the steps.

Backup Apps

Other issues most visited by users of Android is how to back our applications. To do this you can use some third party applications like Astro File Manager, a free tool that allows you to backup applications on the SD card. You can download Astro from here.

Or you can use AppBrain, another application with which you can create a list of your applications and install them on any Android device by performing a simple synchronization.

Backup settings

Customizations of our device is one of the most important issues because it is something that takes time to discover. These allow us to make more convenient and efficient the the use of our mobile.

Unfortunately when we flash these data are the first disappear as a matter of compatibility. However there are tools that give us the ability to create backups of your configurations as MyBackup Pro, a payment app priced at $ 4.99.

This version also has a 30-day trial and allows you to create a copy of your apps, contacts, call history, bookmarks, SMS, MMS, system settings, home screen, alarms, dictionary, calendar, and music on your SD card or within an online account.

Other possibility is Titanium Backup, a free root-user application that allows you to backup, restore, analyze applications you already have installed and even remove applications installed by the system operator.

Backup APN and MMS settings

If you find all this very complicated to install applications to perform bacukp you can still take paper and pencil and make a” manual “backup configurations are more important as APN and MMS settings defined by your carrier.

To do this go to Applications> Settings> Wireless & Networks> Mobile Networks> Access Point Names
