I have a new (Verizon) Nokia Icon (Lumia 929) Windows Phone.
I'm looking for the equivalent of a Full System Backup and Restore (including contacts) solution, similar to what you might have on a PC. By 'contacts', I'm referring to the built-in contacts list. I'm not using Outlook and/or Office 365 at the moment.
Of course, the reason is ... in case the phone bricks, crashes, has to be replaced, something gets corrputed, or some other catastrophe ... the backup could be restored to the same phone or a new phone (assume same or similar model).
There is a built 'Backup' app, but that does not backup Contacts. There is also the built-in "Backup Assistant Plus' app, but there are currently issues with that - I have a ticket in with Verizon on that (good luck!!). In theory, it should be backing up the contact list.
There are a few 'contact backup' apps in the WindowsPhone store/web site - for example http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/contacts-backup/8fc95611-fb8a-4483-9277-864fed3fcb5e ... but none of these apps discuss Restore ... and all seem a bit ... sketchy.
So ... I welcome any ideas, suggestions and so on.
And for the moment, I will settle for just a Contacts backup/restore ... since the phone does include the 'Backup' app - which backs up settings, apps and so on. It's just not clear where on OneDrive they are going ... and how you would restore them.
DISCLAIMER (lol). This is actually my first Smart Phone (coming from an LG Env Touch!) ... so, I could be missing something regarding this subject :-)
TIA ... mx
