Why do so many people on this forum refer to cloud synchronization as "backup?" Even Palm has this thing called Backup that really just synchronizes your phone with the cloud. Is this really backup?
Maybe I am I missing something here, but when you synchronize your data you are essentially mirroring your data between the phone and the cloud. If you accidentally delete a bunch of contacts on your phone won't they also be deleted on Palm or Google or wherever you have set your main profile? Is there anyway to recover from such an error?
Contacts are the most important data I have on my phone and I make sure that I synchronize that back to my desktop via Google and I regularly make a backup archive that I store on different cloud storage.
Am I being over paranoid or are others more reckless -- or am I missing a hidden feature that turns synchronization into backup?
