    It has been discovered that the Verizon Note 7 is missing quite a few key features. One such feature, Samsung cloud, allows you to easily backup contacts and data making it easy to upgrade your device. Verizon has removed this feature from the normal settings menu, but it appears that the feature is still embedded deep within the system. You can actually re-enable the feature pretty easily.

    You will need the paid version of the Nova Launcher to make this happen. Once you have the paid Nova Launcher installed you will need to create a shortcut for the activity ".app.ui-SCloudActivity". You can then launch Samsung Cloud from your homescreen and proceed to create backups and restore backups. This also enables your free 15GB of storage.

    Thanks @Gremlin!

    I was wondering if that would work with Quick Shortcut Maker when I saw you needed Nova Paid. The procedure looks identical to the one I used to reinstate themes support on my V10 that AT&T disabled for some unknown stupid reason.

    You need Nova Launcher Prime(paid) and follow the post # 33 from the link, and it works.

    After you do those steps it will have a shortcut on your home screen....you can open the Task Edge menu settings and you will see the new shortcut available to select.

    Let me know if any of that didn't work.
