As I've mentioned many times before, I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to all this new (new to me!) smartphone stuff. But I'm learning, thanks to all you fine folks! So here's my rookie question of the day. I never had a Google account until I bought my Droid. Prior to opening account, the guy at the VZ store moved all my contacts over from my old flip phone. Do I have to manually sync those contacts to Google, and if so, how do I do it? Or was it somehow magically done OTA? My point is, If I lose my phone I want to make sure all info was stored somewhere I can retrieve it from to install on a new phone. Also, what about the things other than contacts, for example, gallery pictures, apps etc. ? I figured out how to backup everything onto sd card, but wouldn't that be useless if phone was lost or stolen? Hope all that makes sense.
