Android OS has a lot of cool features and no doubt everyone knows about Android and almost all utilize it. Currently Android OS is an Open Source project (I read google plan to make the next version of Android non-open source) and that is one of the pros of using an Android powered phone.

Technology is getting better and advanced day by day, there is Cloud Storage then nobody have to worry about loosing a file on internal storage as long as it is backed up on any cloud server.

After all this, everyone has issues with backing up SMS / MMS to cloud server, so far, what we can backup to our Google account are:

Save changes.
