How to back up data on your old Android phone?

Before you switch to your new phone, you need to ensure that all your important data is saved to the cloud. Usually, Google saves all your contacts, texts, call logs, settings, and even Do Not Disturb details to Google Drive automatically. This way you can restore all your data to the new phone by simply logging in with your Google account while configuring.

Interestingly, Google does not count the data it backs up automatically toward the 15GB free storage quota. It usually backs up call history, text messages, contacts, device settings, app data, and home screen settings. That said, we recommend you check if all the relevant data is saved to the cloud before switching to a new phone.

  1. Go to Settings from Quick Settings or your apps.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page.
  3. Tap on the System menu.
  4. Click on Backup.
  5. Set the ‘Back up to Google Drive’ to ON.
  6. Next, tap on ‘Back up now’ to sync all your data to Google Drive.

Additionally, you can go to to check if all the contacts from your old phone migrated to your Google account. The contacts you see on this page are the ones that will show up on the new phone.

Once all your data is backed up, you can start setting up your new phone.
