    I am doing a factory reset 2 which deletes everything including the SD card. My question is which information is in the google cloud and what do I need to save and the best way to do that? I basically only want to keep all my contacts and photos. Thanks

    Contacts are sync'ed to your GMail account as long as you did not turn that option off. Photos will need to be physically copied off of your SD card to a hard drive if you plan on wiping the card. The default factory reset does not wipe the SD card, so I'm assuming you're doing this manually.

    Lookout Mobile Security backs up your photos into their servers. If you're going to format the SD card, then yeah either physically copy them all to a PC or use Lookout (if you want to restore them to the phone again).
