Active mobile device backup system - AMDBS
The backup system is designed to automatically copy the contents of a mobile device over the mobile data network (GPRS/3G/LTE) onto a central server connected to Internet – the system should be managed centrally through a provisioning interface where basic settings are predefined but should also be available for end user management through a secure web interface.
Other sites offering this type of functionality (although backup is manual): [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]
Provisioning is user activated through an SMS being sent to the mobile device with a link serving as licence acceptance and service initiation. Provisioning can be achieved by customer typing his/her phone number on website or sending SMS to service number 7X XXX.
User should be able to set preferences through web interface, including:
Backup type (see below) depending on available disk space purchased

Automatic backup is scheduled at regular, user-defined intervals through polling.
In case device is unavailable on schedule, should backup be initiated on next contact.
In case backup is discontinued by device or by network, it should be restarted at next contact.
Backup volume settings should be enabled depending on service type, with SMS triggered when maximum volume is reached for additional purchase of storage space.
User is able to purchase different disk space depending on stage required (see below) and mobil device memory. These settings should be 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8 GB, 16GB, 32GB.
