I've just got a S4Mini & have loaded much data in the form of Contacts/Music.

I have Backed this up using "Smart Switch"

But do I also need to Back Up on Google?

If so how?

To back up your phone data on Google @john36 simply go to Settings > Accounts > Backup and Reset > tick the box 'Back up my data' and it'll automatically back up your phone data to Google's servers.

No you shouldn't need Wi-Fi on you should be able to do it over mobile data if you want. And just press OK because pressing cancel will just cancel the whole process, and it shouldn't take that long to complete, and yes you should get a message telling you that the process is complete.

Thanks I've follow this path & have ran into a problem.

After pressing "Back up my Data" I get message:-

Stop backing up Wi Fi ,Passwords,B/Marks & other settings & delete all copies from Google

Press Cancel or OK

1 Can I assume that Wi Fi has to be on in doing the back up process?

2 Do I cancel the above message?

3 How long as estimate does Back up take?

4 Do I get message that Back up is complete?

Can't use Mobile data as can't get signal at home.

Hence will it work with Wi Fi on?

The back up should work over WiFi or mobile data @john36, I back everything up over WiFi automatically so it should work buddy.
