Quick Way to Backup iPhone Data Without iTunes
Help! How can I backup iPhone data without iTunes backup?
As many of you have done, I have disabled the "backup" feature in iTunes because it takes a few hours each time the phone backs up since it's doing an image backup. I like to know if there is a simple app that will backup the contacts, messages, browser bookmarks, photo albums etc. on my iPhone? I don't use google/windows contacts, so I cannot use "sync" in iTunes to sync them (no where to sync). After a restore, I discovered that iTunes does NOT save any of these settings unless you have done a backup.
