Backing up your phone might be even more important than backing up your PC — losing your messages, contacts and pictures is such a hassle. IDrive's automatic, unlimited, lifetime backup of mobiles is currently 79% off for io9 readers. For $10, you get unlimited backup for life with military-grade encryption.
IDrive's service was well reviewed by Lifehacker, and its nifty app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone automatically makes an online copy of everything you designate, with no restriction on storage space or uploads. One subscription covers up to 5 devices, and you can sync files (incl. photos and videos) between devices with a single tap, even if they are on different platforms. You can also access your uploaded stuff on any PC, Mac or other mobile.
