33MB worth of data. Obviously all contacts will be backed up in gmail. So I can't lose anything permanently. But will I lose my favorites menu on my Desire? What other hassle will I have to go through if I Clear Data for contacts?
I have pretty much reached my limit on internal space, but while looks at my apps list on which to delete because I don't use I found only two. I was wondering what will happen if I clear data on the contacts storage i.e. will I loose my contacts, and with the facebook. Is there a way of clearing the data not uninstalling apps if so what data does it clear?
im not sure if this is a repost or if everyone already knows this but this is a very awesome tip. when i hard reset the phone and went to the market, i clicked "my downloads" and my apps that i had b4 were all listed and they said "free", (which meant i had to redownload). so it keeps your history according to your intial google sign in on the phone. ive hard reset bout 3 times just so i lower my market "MB". im at 3mb on my market and 50mb free of memory. i also have 67 apps installed. i highly recommend to hard reset your phone every now and then. it gives you so much more memory when you go and reinstall all your previous apps from "my downloads" section of the market. plus your contacts all sync to your gmail so you dont even have to worry bout losing any contacts. trust me, it really makes a difference in performance after the phone frees up that much memory. b4 i first did it i had like 27mb in my market and like 45 apps with 10mb of free mem on my phone. man did that suck. every time you go in the market or even when you uninstall an app it will still be eating your memory. try it out and leave some feed back. its really harmless. the only thing is that you will have to set your settings on some apps to how it was pre hard reset. for example, missed call, scoreboard, weather channel, and more. but its really worth it.
I know this belongs in the "How To" section, I do, and I'm all for trying to keep things organized around here, but there's no denying that a lot more people will see (and therefore respond to) it here.I have 23MB of memory left on my phone. I can free up memory on my SD card easy enough just by pitching stuff like downloaded installs, vids, pics & music, but what can I pitch to free up PHONE memory?
How do you free up internal phone memory? When I click on my Quick Settings app, I see that I only have 15% (23mb) of free Phone memory. Is this normal? Maybe this is why my phone is a little laggy at times? Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
My phone (htc desire) kept saying low on phone storage and I assumed this meant the memory card (originally 4gb) so I purchased an 8gb sd card and put it in my phone, however the same message popped up low on phone storage. I now realise that its the memory storage thats low and not the sd card. Is there are way of moving my apps etc., on to the sd card rather than using the phone memory? If this isn't possible is there any other way of getting around the low phone storage problem?
Does anyone come across any trusted free phone contacts backup apps in the Android Market? I found an apps called "backup for root users" in Android Market, but from the user review, it looks like it's very buggy.Does anyone has any other better phone contacts backup apps to recommend?
This is a great way to easily backup and sync your phone! Never plug in, always be backed up!(Now available to Froyo!) m:IQ takes your phone content and pushes it to a private account on the web. From then on, what you do on the phone will instantly update on the web, and what you do on the web will update on your phone. Aside from backing up all data,(contacts, texts, photos, videos ect.) users can send texts from the web, import contacts with ease to push to their phone, browse and manage data, upload photos to social media, edit calender, and much more! m:IQ also makes it easier than ever to migrate phones! You can download the app FREE from the market.
Not had my desire long but down loaded a few apps for it they all seem to be stored on phone memory not the sd card. what is stored to the sd card seems to be unused so far. do you have to set it up to use sd card or does it know one is fitted. does it switch to sd card when phone memory full. will run out of space soon if can't get things to store to card instead of phone mem.
I bought Cubot c9w android phone, i install 2 gb SD card on it, i can not install some apps on it for example facebook. after i tried to move apps from phone memory into SD card but impossible, there was not activated move to SD card button.
what have to do how to install or move after that apps to SD card to make phone memory free?
I clear that will it delete everything out of my calendar (and then sync up to Google calendar wiping all my events? Or will it clear everything on the phone and then start to re-populate the phone calendar with my online Google calendar? Is there somewhere in android you tell it to only sync X number of weeks with the calendar - I vaguely remember seeing this before but I forget where.
I have free space on the internal memory of my phone that is not recognized for things like installing an app.
This is my phone:
Model: Motorola XT919 Android version: jelly bean 4.1.2 Internal memory: 4gb (really 2,2 gb free since the rest is used by the OS) Rooted: Yes
I found out about this problem because I was running out of internal space so I inmediately checked the storage settings and I found this:
In the installed apps settings it shows 766 mb free of internal space But in the storage settings the things are different: As you can see, this time I only have 127 mb free of internal storage....
Just to be sure, I downloaded the app Storage Analyser and once again checked the internal storage free space: And this time shows 1,52 gb free...
Well the thing is that my phone considers as free space just the 127mb shown on storage settings, and I want the phone also uses the free space shown on the app settings or the one shown by storage analyser.
I'm going to flash (format) my Samsung Galaxy S2 (both the external sd and internal sd) . My phone is not rooted. But there are some app's data that i want to backup before formatting.Those are some of my games' progress,Mozilla Firefox's history,bookmarks etc,Opera Mini history etc. , and the songs i tagged in Shazam.How am i supposed to do that since i know that you can't backup app data such as game progrees if your phone is not rooted ? Also i can't access those apps,whenever i open them they constantly crash,this started 1 week ago,that's why im gonna flash my device.
I had a Nexus S. Got some games and got pretty far in them. I did not root the phone. Now I have an N4. I want to pick up where I left off on the new phone with regards to the games.. let's say, They Need To Be Fed as an example.
Now, neither phone is rooted, so obviously this complicates things, but it is not impossible. I can easily use Carbon to backup my app data and restore it onto the new phone without requiring a root. However I want to explore alternative methods.
So in a perfect situation, I would like the app data (and/or the app itself) to be backed up into one nice file that can be saved onto the new phone and then opened up to put the saved data where it needs to be. I'm not sure, but do .apk's contain app data as well? Could I save my current progress on TNTBF along with the app itself into a .apk and then extract the file on my new phone to continue where I left off?
What Carbon does is create a folder specific for the app and its data, which is a bunch of files I'm not familiar with, and requires Carbon to restore the data itself. Although this app is phenomenal and will be my last resort, I'd like something that doesn't require the app itself to restore the data. I used to use something called Ultimate Backup I think. When I selected to backup an app, it would save a .apk to the sd card. I'm not sure if it was backing up just the app or the app data as well, but if it did save the app data then that would be optimal.
I have been a Nokia fan for years, but for a few months now I am totally thrilled and amazed by Android. So I decided to drop my Nokia phone, and buy a Samsung Galaxy S. I saved some money, and next month will have enough to buy my very first Android phone. I cant wait to have that phone. However I decided to post on this forum to ask you two questions regarding the Samsung Galaxy S and Android.
1. As far as I understood Android synchronizes phone data in Google applications (Gmail, Google Calender, Googe Tasks, ect.). What if I do not have google account and do not intend to have one? Can I backup my contacts/messages/phone settings on my computer?
2. I saw that many phones (Samsung Galaxy S as well) have weather widgets on main screen which show the weather forecast. My question is that these weather widgets are available only if there is a wi-fi or mobile internet connection? If there is no internet available then these widgets disappear? Because I would like to get one of these widgets but I will have internet available to my mobile phone only at my home, so when I am outside or workplace there is no internet.
Does anyone know if the VZW Backup application can send contacts to the Droid? I'm currently using a non smartphone that uses VZW Backup to back up my contacts on the phone online somewhere. I don't know if the Droid is compatible with the VZW Backup app tho.
I broke the screen/digitizer on my phone the other night. I got a new replacement phone through my mobile insurance. I was able to create a backup of my old phone through Kies since it's only the screen that won't work. However, upon further research, I'm seeing that Kies does not back up apps or app data. It says it does, when I selected everything while I was backing up but it won't let me when I try to restore it to the new device. It will only let me restore the contacts, pics, music etc.. which I already have on my micro SD card.
I've seen that people use helium backup but I am unable to do anything on my old device other than plugging it into a computer. I can't install helium on the old phone. Will I be able to backup the broken phone just with Helium Desktop?
I don't quite know where to place this, but I have Rom toolbox pro and I want everything backed up, so when I do a system reset, I get everything back. I can backup phone data, but I don't see an option to back it up on dropbox. Am I overlooking something?
Oh, also, can I only back up app data to the cloud, and not the entire app? I'll just download it when I need it, but, I'd like the app settings on the cloud.
I used to have a HTC Desire HD. On that was a brilliant ROM, spent ages on it and it had LOTS of data and apps. One time I backed it up through Clockworkmod and a few days later it bricked. I managed to breath life into it but I couldn't restore that file because I moved it to my PC and so much time had passed that I couldn't find it. Recently I found the backup and saw the apps and app data was still inside (opened using winrar).
Is there any way I can move this app data and the apps to my Galaxy Note 2? I had a Titanium backup but it was on my phone memory which got wiped, the SD card was untouched. If there's an incompatibility between HTC and Samsung recovery backups could I use my dad's HTC Wildfire to put the app data on then Titanium backup and move the apps and app data over?
