    Hi there
    Would love some help please. Just taken delivery of a 5T as an upgrade for my 3. Can't set the 5T up because my 3 isn't backing up. Googled it relentlessly to no avail. Any ideas please? Backup account settings are correct but just say "waiting to backup" for several options.
    Thanks

    Yep, WiFi or data, charging or not charging, full or partially charged.

    Thanks, this would have been just the ticket except that app needs the camera (no idea why, but that cannot be disabled in permissions without then not loading). Unfortunately the reason for getting the 5T is that I've dropped the 3 once too often and the camera/flash no longer work. Must be a faulty hardware connection now. As a result, any app that needs camera or flash hangs immediately.

    Searching for Oneplus Switch has highlighted a couple of other apps that may work instead though so thanks for the leads. Bit surprised that Switch isn't better advertised. I'd not heard of it until you mentioned it.

    Maybe it's a hardware problem.
    And OnePlus switch is a great option to go :)

    The Oneplus switch probably needs camera for scanning QR codes.

    Try connecting to a charger and see if the backup process is starting and check if backup through Mobile data is enabled if you are using mobile data

    This solution was OK for me:

    1) Enable Debugging/ADB on phone

    2) Enter the following ADB commands from your PC/shell

    adb shell
    bmgr run
    bmgr backupnow --all

    I should have quoted
    That reply was meant for the quote below wondering why a backup app required camera permission and he had a broken camera
