*The Backup/restore functions supported by Samsung Cloud are dependent on your country, network provider, and device model. Specific items supported by your device are shown in the cloud settings on your device.

*Contacts saved on your device and USM, and My profile and Calendar items saved on your device, will be automatically backed up if "Auto backup" is enabled or "Back up now" is selected. This is intended to prevent the loss of data that was not saved in Samsung Cloud. Additionally, Contacts and Calendar data saved on your device are not only backed up, but also synced when changes are made within these apps.
