    When I go to Settings --> Privacy, all I see is Factory Reset. Does anyone else see other options, like backup and automatic restore?

    An app I use, AudioManager Pro just added the ability to backup data via the above method. However, I don't have it. I am not sure if all Epic's don't have it or mine doesn't since I am rooted. I am not positive, but I don't think I had this before I rooted.

    The description from the Market page for AudioManager Pro is:

    Added auto backup and restore, when enabled (system Settings -> Privacy -> Back up my data and Automatic restore) your settings and profiles will automatically get restored after a wipe or when you move to a new device.

    Are you trying to do it from inside the app or from the android menu?

    Try it from inside the app.

    From the Android menu. The description from the Market page points to going into system settings, not settings within the app.

    After a little more digging, it looks like it could be phone / carrier specific.... See here:

    Sounds like this app calls the Android's new backup-to-cloud functionality included in Gingerbread. The stock Epic does not yet run Gingerbread.

    Interesting. I hadn't heard of that yet... Unless the developer builds a backup function into the app itself, I guess I will have to wait for Gingerbread to come to the Epic.

    I may need to correct myself here. Using the Google backup service is supposed to require API Level 8, which I believe is associated with Android 2.2 (Froyo). But that confuses me. I have never encountered apps using this service so I thought it was a Gingerbread thing.
