I was wondering if I could programmatically backup my Android phone's settings. The "PHONE"'s settings and not application settings.

@roxan that question should be ok. See it from a power user's POV not from a developer's. As for a solution: TitaniumBackup allows scheduled jobs that can e.g. save to the cloud, see – ce4 Jan 13 '13 at 13:57
Doesn't "programmatically backup" implies writing code? – roxan Jan 13 '13 at 15:39
Not if you just copy/paste a tasker script. – ce4 Jan 13 '13 at 18:05

The easiest way availaboe to you is using a third party app. I found My Backup Pro (there is a free version as well) which seemed promising.

You can also search he market for settings backup.

I use an system app provided by the manufacturer which is called backup and restore. I'll give them if the mentioned solution does not work for you. The reason im asking you to go with the first app is that the manufacturer's system app is highly unlikely to work properly ina device other than the one is originally made for.
