The lady at the kiosk convinced me to purchase an SD card for my LG G3 to automatically backup all the contents/photo's on my new phone. However, it was not told to me how this is setup. I have the SD card installed, what next??

Hey Matt :)

You can download the LG Backup app from Google Play (, once downloaded pick the second option "Back up safely" to back up data such as Contacts, Calendar, Photos, Music and Videos.

On the "Back up to" menu, you should see your SD card (you should also see 2 check marks on "Personal data" and "Media data") tap "Start" and the back up will start (you will see a progress bar).

The more data you have, the more time it will take to complete the task. Please note that it's better to have an SD card that has more GB's than the internal storage if you want to backup all the media content on your LG G3.

Hope this helps!
