What is ICloud, I've seen the term and heard a little about it but what is it exactly for and how does one go about using it.  Is there a comparable service offered on android or BB ?  Thanks !

Hey there CritterHunter,

 

As KittyGumDropz has mentioned in her post, iCloud is a virtual for iOS devices. Think of it as a cloud where your iPhone's data is protected and stored so if anything happens to your phone you will have a backup copy. It stores your contacts, calendars, notes, reminders, photos, etc. I think the following link will show the huge benefits of iCloud and what it does behind-the-scenes: http://goo.gl/aPZfO

 

To further answer your question, there are similar alternatives on Android & BlackBerry.

 

On Android, Gmail can help you backup your contacts, calendar, etc on the cloud as well. These are the instructions for a Samsung Galaxy S4 that apply to most Android devices: http://goo.gl/Y8qoCp

 

Also for Android, you have the option of the Google Drive which will allow you to store data in the cloud. This might enlighten you on its features: http://goo.gl/7uM7SX

 

For BlackBerry, the alternative to iCloud would be BlackBerry Protect which backs up your phone wireless (like the previous alternatives) in case of lost/stolen or broken phone. You can find out more information about it here: http://goo.gl/yuPqMh

 

Hope that answers all your questions 🙂

iCloud is a virtual storage of apple devices. It's a service of apple that works the same as a memory device where you can store all contents of your phone such as photos and apps that you downloaded through the app store.

**Note: That's why iPhones, iPad, and iPod doesn't have memory cards.
