OK, I've been away from forum for extended time but have only had huge numbers of medical appointments which completely wears me out. I had a surgical date but when person who will be my caregiver after orthopedic surgery developed serious illness, I had to postpone! That is SO frustrating but was necessary. Problem is, medical clearance lasts only 30 days so I need to get it done soon or they will need to do surgery on my head to fix insanity!
On topic of phone backup, I use several, My Backup Pro (4.5rating)by Rerware, SMS Backup & Restore (4.7 rating), SMS Backup+ (4.6 rating), Clickfree Mobile Backup (4.4 rating -surprises me as I expected it would be higher but people may not be familiar with their Click-free Backup Drives that I connect to my PC, set it up for time of daily backup & forget it. It's amazing & this is by same company. Due to my history with Clickfree, I have high confidence in their backing up. My plan was to have one app which would handle what was connected to one Gmail account, etc but as this has proceeded, my Contacts are for option "phone" rather than particular email account.
At one point I followed one method of deleting all contacts & was surprised that phone has memory from somewhere as it wasn't a dreadful experience. My next approach is going to be, send all contacts to vCard, send to Google, & see if that solves it. So far, nothing has made any difference so I'm getting all the same messages or alerts. While I have Backup Assistant, it has never worked, never synced. It shows Sync with circle that goes backwards with point at almost 9-10, that says "Too many Contacts deletes" & Backup Assistant+Contacts says "Sync unable to complete."
It's already too late to try anything involved in this thread tonight but I wanted to touch base & find out if anything new had come forward as possible solutions for my problems. I certainly appreciate your assistance & given another day, I'll expect to have more of a report. Thanks for the help along the way, Bye, S
