App and settings backup
i have tryed a number of times to back up my apps and settings on my lumia 930 but the text on screen says there was a problem backing up my settings and to try again later.
my photos are being backed without issue, i have a good internet connection and the phone is not in airplain mode.
i also have two lumia 520s on the same microsoft account and they back up apps and settings without issue.
if anyone could give some help with problem that would be great

I am having the same issue. I just bought a Nokia 520 at a great price of $30 to try out the Windows Platform. I have had two iPhones and then I recently got a Galaxy S5 and liked it better than my iPhones. I could not resist the deal of getting a Nokia Windows phone brand new with no contract for $30 just to try out the platform. I really am impressed with the phone. The only issues I am having is that the platform definitely lacks apps that I have really gotten depend on both iPhone and Android. Going from 160 iPhone apps to Android I found that I was not able to find 5 to 10 apps on the Android platform, luckily I found very capable substitute apps. That is not the case on Windows platform. I really find there are a lot of apps that just don't exist and no real substitutes either. Its a real shame. The Windows Platform is very similar to the iPhone experience. Very clean very easy to use.
Now the other issue is the backup error message. Seems I have not been able to find a solution. I have tried several suggestions. I have deleted the back up several times. I have rebooted the phone several times, I have changed the lockscreen to Bing, I have shut off text backup, I have changed my lockscreen to Never. I don't know what else to try. I have a feeling it is backing up something. Because a backup file does appear in One Drive. But it doesn't feel good to keep getting "There is a problem backing up your phone settings. Try again later." I usually resolve issues on the Galaxy and iPhone a lot easier. I guess there are more solutions available.
