Having extensive experience with all sorts of OS's, I am new to smartphones and Android. After a week or so, I have the HTC Desire working almost the way I want it. Perhaps I will find answers to the few questions I still have in this forum. And if I can help anyone later - so much the better. My first question is about backup. In the manual it says you can make a backup of the system to the SD card by choosing Privacy in Settings. But there is no such item on my phone. HTC confirmed that this function is dropped. I would like to make regular backups before installing new apps. There are several backup apps out there, but can anyone recommend one? I do not want to root the phone. I want to add that this it not about backing up data like Contacts, Mail and Agenda. Google does that beautifully.
