As we load up our smartphones and tablets with more and more contacts, documents, photos and other media files, the prospect of losing all that data becomes more of a concern. After all, smartphones are not like laptops. They fall out of pockets, the get left in restaurants, and they spend an unusual amount of time in bathrooms! Sadly, most smartphones are an accident waiting to happen.
Given the important place that mobile devices now have in our daily lives, it makes perfect sense to have a back-up plan – except that’s what we have been saying about our laptops and computers for years without much to show for it. Fortunately, backing up a smartphone takes a lot less effort.
While there are lots of third-party cloud options, the option that makes the most sense is usually the one provided by your carrier. Verizon recently introduced an updated and upgraded Verizon Cloud storage service, which allows customers to sync and save important contacts, photos, videos, music, documents, and even text messages.
Verizon Cloud allows you to sync across multiple devices, so your content is accessible from both your smartphone and your tablet. You can also manage your content on the Web via a laptop or computer. You can even stream songs and movies from Verizon Cloud without the need to download. Best of all, you can schedule backups to take place automatically so there’s no chance you’ll forget.
You can download the Verizon Cloud app and get 5GB of storage free of charge. If you have a More Everything plan, that free Verizon Cloud allowance increases to 25GB. That’s enough storage for thousands of photos and songs, with still enough room for all your favorite movies. If you still need more storage, then you can buy additional space low monthly rates.
The Verizon Cloud app walks you through all the steps you need to set up your account and it will even delay uploads until Wi-Fi is available so it doesn’t impact your monthly data allowance. Don’t risk losing all your important data. Get the Verizon Cloud app and you’ll have one less thing to worry about!
