          It is a software to backup your contacts, emails and text messages to a server that can be used to recover from in a situation of having to hard reset device or if you replace a device you wont loose all your information..

                    How is this different than the contacts in GMAIL?  or do they work together?  I had planned to not use the stock email app when my phone arrives, but rather k-9 (it was recommended) ....  So if I use K-9 and set-up my YAHOO email, can I assume that the GMAIL contacts will come down to the phone for my use with YAHOO & K-9 ??

                     

                    sorry for the long question -- just trying to do it right the 1st time.
