Online Mobile Backup

In today's day and age, we do a lot on our phones. We take pictures, record videos, create documents, and send emails. With all that information, you need to back it up. Why you ask? There are many reasons for why you need to back up your phone. Here are just a couple of reasons.
1. More information means more memory. You don't have unlimited space on your phone. You will need to delete some things. Backing it up allows you to store it somewhere else so you can free up the space on your phone.
2. Your phone can get destroyed and you lose all of your videos and pictures. Having back up allows you to get it all back.
MyLookout.com Mobily Security is the service that I use myself. No, im not affiliated with this site. I use a website myblackjack2.com because I have a black jack 2. MBJ2 posted some information about this service. It used to be called flexilis, but now it is MyLookout Mobile Security. It has anitviris and firewall for most smartphones or phones with web access. Ex: Blackjack. iphones, blackberry, etc.

MyLookout Mobile Security provides many great features with its service. For Free!

(I like this because I tend to leave my phone on vibrate and I lose it in the house sometimes)

  • Make your device emit a loud siren noise (caution: it's very loud)
  • Switch off your device to stop the screaming
  • Network connection required; may take a few minutes

I personally recommend this application for anyone with a mobile phone that it supports. Don't get caught dropping your phone in the lake and losing everything.

Note: it is recommended that you have an unlimited data plan. You could run yours or your parents' phone bill really high
