    backing up before doing a hard re set

    I am not very well versed in computerspeak , and have never had to back up anything on my phone , so please excuse me if these questions are remedial. I am having no luck in diagnosing a problem with my bluetooth(won't turn on) , Samsung has suggested doing a Hard re set ,in hopes of fixing the problem. I would like to back up ALL of my data , contacts , apps , texts , etc. , but have no idea on how to go about it. I did a search here and became even more confused ! Will I be backing up to a pc , if so will I need a physical connection , will I backup with KIEs , and again , how is this done , and what , if any apps should I get to make my life easier , by the way after this , I want to update the OS as I am using gingerbread. Thanks in advance

    Hello gsdan, I created the following thread for such matters. Hopefully it will cover most aspects you are looking for.

    A rough Guide To Backup Your Phone

    Once you update from Gingerbread you will need to carry out a factory reset again, that is after you update.
    S3 (i9300) - AOKP 4.3
    Note 3 (N9005) - 4.3
    Nexus 7 (2012) - 4.4.2
