    Though iPhone is with free utility iTunes for creating backup but it si quite slow and also shows errors. So better go for professional tool for creating backup of your important data on iPhone as the contacts, sms, music videos, and others. In just few clicks it creates backup of iPhone data so that in any case of data loss users can easily restore iPhone data.

    arl.... I think you should try iTunes as much as I despise it. Since we don't have a chance to see the other option that alace.... offered, I'd use iTunes. It does do a fine backup, but it does have its quirks.

    iCloud does a pretty good job at this. I use to use a contacts backup app too....but then realized iCloud is so much more simpler. As simple as turning the toggle on.

    Plus... this thread originated 8 months ago. iOS 5+ & iCloud weren't even a thought to us back then... LOL!!!

    Haha. Oh. But like I said...he can do this with any other account too. Not just iCloud. If he had a Yahoo email, he could use that.
