AT&T Mobile Backup Secures Your Contacts

Illustration for article titled AT&T Mobile Backup Secures Your Contacts

It's kind of a pain to back up the numbers in your phone even for people who know how, so imagine how your mother feels. Now you can skip the Google search to see if your phone's compatible with your computer by just using AT&T's Mobile Backup.


After you install the suite onto your phone, you can either manually back up your contacts all at once, only back up some, or just set up a schedule to do it all for you. They're stored on AT&T's servers, which means they're slightly more resistant than backing up stuff on your own machine. And if you get a new phone (that's supported), it's easy to download the contacts again. It's so painless you'll want to drop your phone in the toilet just to use it.

AT&T Mobile Backup



If this works as well as Verizon's backup service, it will indeed be a life saver. Verizon has an app you d/l to your handset that lets you back contacts up every day. When you replace your phone, you d/l the same app, enter your PIN, and your contacts all come back. The app's price is listed at $1.99/mo, but if you use their web site to view your bill it's free! It saved my ass when my phone's battery died on me.
