Verizon no longer has an app to do this (that I can see).
My iTunes will NOT back up my phone because it wants to erase it. I was on the phone with Apple and they want to force me to wipe it. So iTunes is NOT an option. I tried. For hours. No-go.
In Googling around I keep getting websites that literally cause my PC’s malwarebytes to freak out. Too many scams.
Many apps want $40 or more from me, which is absurd. TONS of free trials, that only xfer a few messages (useless).
Can anyone provide an answer on this? It seems incredibly difficult and I am sure there must be a solution. I know that the Essential is an "old" phone, but mine is a new Ocean Depths (never before used) in perfect condition so I really want to use it and get rid of this massive iPhone with stupid face id.
