HTC Incredible :: Restoring Contacts From Backup Assistant?

Nov 3, 2010

I backup my contacts to my Verizon using the preinstalled Backup Assistant. When I visit the website all of my contacts are in there. But when I factory reset my phone and try to restore the contacts it only gives me about 1/3 of them. What gives? Can anybody explain this and tell me how to get all of my contacts from My Verizon onto my Incredibe?

Motorola Droid :: Verizon Backup Assistant / Google Contacts

Oct 29, 2009

Will Droid work with Verizon's Backup Assistant to backup contact list, or sync with Google(gmail/gtalk) Contacts?Or, both? The backup assistant costs $1.99 a month, or something like that, but is waived if on Premium plan.I'll be dropping down to the "Connect" plan since don't need VZ-Navigator option anymore, which would mean I'd have to start paying the $1.99 for Backup Assistant, or I assume for FREE sync to Google contacts?

HTC Incredible :: Backup Assistant

Apr 26, 2010

I am trying to backup my current contact on my dumbphone, but I'm having trouble doing it. I can't get backup assistant by going to "get it now" on my phone and when I try to send backup assistant to my phone on verizon's website, it will only let me send it to the primary account number (i'm on a family plan) and not my number.

HTC Incredible :: How Backup Assistant Works

Jul 1, 2010

I have a question about how the Backup Assistant works. I currently have an LG Dare and have Backup Assistant on it. I will be getting my DINC in mid-July (hopefully! ). I assume that I will be able to simply download the backup assistant app on the DINC and update all of the contacts from the Dare, is that correct? I really don't want to have to set up all of these contacts again.

HTC Incredible :: Disable Backup Assistant

Sep 9, 2010

How to disable / turn off Verizon Backup Assistant without a factory reset (and Use gmail contacts sync only - recommended!)

Also in post #3 below: How to Sync Contacts with Gmail and Change Contact type from Phone to Google

Disabling Backup Assistant on the HTC Droid Incredible There may be other ways to disable backup assistant, but follow these steps to remove duplicate contacts and backup assistant without having to factory reset. Please be aware that I just tinkered around until I got the desired result. I'm no expert and I have no idea if this effects the phone in any other way. I did this over the weekend and everything is working perfectly on my phone. So proceed at your own risk, I don't want to get any pm's about how your phone blew up. I'm just trying to help out here.

1) Be sure to have all your contacts backed up to your Gmail account. Check online before proceeding to step 2.

2) Log into your My Verizon account. Go to the contacts tab, sort by list view and select all contacts. Delete the entire list. There's a deleted contacts tab as well. Select that and delete anything that's in there.

3) Go into your Incredible settings tab, select applications, manage applications. Do not sort or filter, allow list to populate. Select Sync Service, (icon resembles backup assistant icon) select clear data.

4) Also in manage applications scroll down to backup assistant, select clear data. This should do it.

5) To verify backup assistant is now disabled, select settings, accounts and sync, then under manage accounts, select backup assistant. You should be looking at a license agreement screen.

No more backup assistant, no factory reset.

ALSO -

If you're rooted, you can use the free "Titanium Backup" to uninstall Backup Assistant. Be sure to back it up in Titanium backup before uninstalling it. After you uninstall, it will no longer appear at all in Accounts and Sync.

HTC Incredible :: How Do I Stop Backup Assistant From Always Running?

Jul 1, 2010

Once upon a time I accidently thought backup assistant would be useful and set it up. Now ever since setting it up it runs in the background like an annoying pest. I have cleared the cache as online recommendations have mentioned, but Backup Assistant STILL runs in the background and restarts if forced to quit.I'm now rooted and have the Clockwork recovery mod on my phone....what can I do now to permenantly banish "Backup Assistant" from running? I've heard of people deleting it but then having problems with syncing FCing. So I'm just looking to slam the door in its face.

HTC Incredible :: Post 2.2 Factory Reset: Backup Assistant?

Sep 2, 2010

I have just been updated to Froyo this morning, and a LOT of threads talk about backing up your phone and doing a factory reset. A Verizon tech installed Backup Assistant onto my phone when he transferred my old contacts to my Incredible, and I see it running in the background all the time. Is this enough for my 'backup' when i do a factory reset? I don't see an actual app or anything. Thanks in advance for the help!

HTC Incredible : Way To Receive Contact Info During Backup Assistant?

May 17, 2010

So this morning I decided to use the Backup Assistant for the first time & set it up through my Verizon, got the pin & proceeded to BU my contacts. When I went back to the contacts on my phone there where other names, numbers & email addresses mixed in with my contacts (at least 10 or more). I just started deleting them not thinking much about it, but now I'm a little concerned. I ran the Backup again and it worked fine. Any one experience this or have any ideas? I searched and can't find any info on this glitch.

HTC Incredible :: Backup Assistant For Original Storm - Older BB Devices

Apr 19, 2010

I know many of you are getting ready to make the jump from BB to the Incredible. I just had to have a way to back up my contacts.

TO ALL Storm users (and other users with 5.0, not sure if it works with 4.7.. should be able, havent tested it) you CAN backup your phone via backup assistant from Verizon. I did this yesterday and now have all of my contacts backed up on my account.

While the Tour and Storm 2 had the program pushed to their devices, I (and others) were still able to grab the link!

Simply download and install the backup assistant from the tour link.

http://mobile.vzw.com/download/BUA/BB9630/syncclient_ba_bb9000.jad

or try the Storm2 link if that one doesn't work (it should)

[url]

BOTH worked for me on my storm. they should work for you too.

** TO RESTORE on your new Droid Incredible**

When logged in to verizonwireless.com, you can simply select all contacts then export them as a .csv file.

After you do that, login to your gmail account (you have to have one to use an android device anyway) and you can import your contacts.

A more detailed rundown is here

How to Transfer contacts from your phone to your Android device

This is for the original droid, but will work fine! Just skip the top part about backup assistant

OR USE GOOGLE SYNC

HTC Incredible :: Combine Contact Info From Venison / Backup Assistant And In Gmail?

Apr 25, 2010

I, obviously, pre-ordered the DI and I'm trying to get everything in my Gmail ready so that when I get the phone I can streamline the whole setup process. What's the best way to combine contact info from My Verizon/Backup Assistant and contacts in Gmail? Should I start manually combining names, numbers, addresses, and emails in My Verizon? Is Gmail better at syncing and management or can all this be done in the phone with People? What about groups? Will those translate if I set up groups in Gmail and/or My Verizon?

2.1 Update :: Backup Restore Failure - All Contacts Lost?

Nov 22, 2010

Today I went to update my X10. While at work it wouldn't allow me to as it insisted I connected it to a computer. So at home I got the USB cabled hooked up to my Linux Laptop and then discovered it had to be a windows computer. Anyway, I got it hooked to a Windows computer and the update process began. I followed every instruction and set all tickboxes for backup. After unplugging this and plugging it back in and rebooting here and there, it finally reached the restore process. I left it restoring for a while.

When I came back to it, it said something had crashed. I don't know what as I'd just woken from a nap. But, it seems all my applications are restored. Yet my gmail account & facebook account have become disassociated from my phone and all my contacts no longer have any names or pictures. I opened the contacts/phone book and the list is completely empty. I tried to import contacts but it says it cannot find any anywhere. I have work related contacts as well as family & friends and really need to get my contacts back - please advise?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Contacts Lost After Upgrade To Droid 2.1 / Get Them Back?

Nov 17, 2010

I have upgraded my OS from 1.6 to 2.1 today using the PC companion.
As suggested, I have taken the backup using the backup & restore app.

After, the phone got upgraded, I could find only facebook contacts in my list.
then i went to View options and played around with all the check boxes and i could view the contacts.

how ever, i could see each contact having the numbers multiple times inside it.
so, I deleted the contacts and tried to restore them again.

the restore was successful. i can see the contacts in my favorites list. when i dial/receive calls, i can still see the contact name.

but, the contacts are not being shown in the list. i know this is a weird problem.

Motorola Droid X :: VZW Backup Assistant

Nov 14, 2010

Anyone else having issues with Backup Assistant. Mine has not worked in over a month. Everytime it is scheduled to run I get a message that says incorrect PIN. I know the PIN I'm using is correct, I click on "forgot PIN" and get the same number I'm using. VZW tells me it is a "KNOWN PROBLEM" but apparently in over a month they haven't been able to fix it. It worked to begin with when I got the DX, how can something like this happen. If they made changes that didn't work, can't they change it back?

Samsung Fascinate :: Backup Assistant

Sep 12, 2010

Total newbie with basic questions about backing up contacts using VW Backup Assistant. I had all my contacts copied over to my new Fascinate and all my Gmail contacts info also got synched up. I just wanted the contacts with phone numbers to show up in my Contacts list and so selected the option that displays Contacts this way.

Now the backup service seems to only back up 4 contacts (#BAL, #DATA, #MIN, #PMT) and none of my actual contacts. how to get all my contacts synched up with the online Backup Assistant?
