Edit: Sorry, misspelling in the topic title. Should be Backup Phone. (Fixed )
When I installed ICS (through a download, not OTA), I basically lost everything no my phone. My texts, my contacts, etc. I eventually resynced everything with my Google and Facebook contacts but still, my old texts were lost.
My phone is not rooted. I know nothing about rooting phones. At the same time, I want to remain eligible for all VZ updates for my phone and I don't know how that works for rooted users.
I've tried the Verizon Backup Plus assistant, which did backup my contacts. Unfortunately, it did not backup my media, as I received some sort of connection error. I do not want to lose this data. I assume it also means texting history as well.
What are my alternatives?
