    This is probably a stupid question, but I'll be receiving my Rezound tomorrow and was wondering what's the best way to get all of my data, texts, pics, contacts, EVERYTHING over to my new phone from my Droid. I've heard of the Google "cloud" but does that back up pics? I have a subscription to Wavesecure..I got the free lifetime way back when they were offering it..is that the best way to go? Just back up to their site and restore? Doesn't Verizon also offer a backup system?

    P.S. Also my music.

    download sms backup.
    make a backup of your text messages
    copy everything you want to transfer into a new folder on your pc
    then copy it back to your new phone when you get it.
    unless your rooted you won't be able to transfer app data. meaning your levels your currently at in angry birds etc....

    google backsup your contacts but as a safe keep go to your contacts and hit menu/export to sd. and back that up with the rest of your files.

    An additional question, figured I'd put it here vs starting a new thread.

    I did what you said above but when I'm trying to copy the data to the new sd card that came with the phone I'm getting a write protected error message. I feel like I'm missing something simple cuz I've done it before & I don't remember it being difficult. But then again it's been awhile since I went fr the 2GB card to the 8GB one.

    Thanks for your help. I'm excited to start using my new Rezound but a little sad to retire my Incredible.
