Google Android will automatically backup the majority of your data/settings but it never hurts to have an additional backup just in case.
WaveSecure is one such option. It is a paid for service that retails at $20 per year, but for a limited time, if you place an order with Clove Technology that totals £20 or more, you get a FREE 3 month subscription to the service.
No ties, simply 3 months of FREE use without restriction. At the end of the 3 months, you can either upgrade to retain the features or decline and cease using WaveSecure, but we would be very surprised if you did this.
So what does WaveSecure offer:
Back up your data for protection
Choose to back up data straight from your Android phone or remotely on the web. Important personal information such as SMS, contacts and call logs can be stored securely on the WaveSecure web site. In addition to keeping your data safe, you will be able to access them with a web browser. Anytime. Anywhere.
Don’t lose your photo and video memories. With WaveSecure for Android, you can back up and keep them safe, too.
Restore your data when needed
WaveSecure lets you restore your SMS and contacts stored online to your phone. If you find that a hassle, trigger a restore of your backed up information from the WaveSecure web site. This will send your personal data wirelessly from our servers to your mobile.
Lock and secure your Android phone
What happens when your Android phone is stolen? Don’t fret if you have WaveSecure. Our mobile security service will automatically lock your phone once it detects a SIM change. This prevents unauthorized use and makes the phone worthless to the thief.
Choose to display a message on the device to prompt the the finder to return the device. If you want, you can sound an alarm remotely to warn the thieft and increase the chances of recovering your phone, too.
Track and locate your mobile
Once WaveSecure detects the insertion of a new SIM card, your buddy will get a SMS alert so you can contact the person who has found or stolen your device.
In addition, WaveSecure lets you track the current location of your phone and even plot them out on a map.
