If you're a heavy cell phone user (or someone who may use your cell as your only communication device), then you may have contemplated the fear of either losing your phone, or having it crap out unexpectedly. What are you to do without your contact lists and text messages? I mean, who remembers actual phone numbers anymore? Certainly not my boyfriend as I found out recently.
Creating a backup (like you would for your computer) seems like a pretty great idea, just in case. This is where Skydeck comes in. Signing up for a Skydeck account means you get a backup of your data in a web-mail like interface where you can find your important numbers, read texts, and even make calls (for a charge) if you are ever without your cell. Skydeck puts me more at ease, since sometimes I can be a total worrywart about losing my precious handset. Who wouldn't?!
