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?

Motorola Droid X :: Verizon Backup Assistant

Oct 1, 2010

Rooting and Titanium backup so wanted to throw that out to you all.

Anyway, I was messing with freezing stuff in Titanium backup, and I wanted to freeze the VZW Backup Assistant. It worked, but in the process when I rebooted the phone, all of my contacts were gone.

Now in Titanium, there are two versions appearing. 1.0 and 2.2. (I froze both). When I defrosted them and rebooted the phone, the backup app came back. When I tried to sync (thinking it will pull whatever I had in my Verizon account, it did not). I guess it just syncs what you have on the phone vs. pulling down when you have online.

Anyway, just logged into my VZW account and all my contacts are indeed gone.

Now, is there something hidden somewhere in the phone where I can get them back? A file or something?

If not then...

I have my Droid Incredible (not activated at the moment) with all of my contacts. Is there a file or way to export that data from my Incredible and import it back into my X?

If you need any more questions answered please let me know. Worst case scenario is I have to manually add them all back. I chalk it up as a learning experience.

Motorola Droid X :: Verizon Backup Assistant - Disabling

Jul 18, 2010

I am new to android and made the mistake of enabling the backup assistant. It serves no purpose when I already have all my contacts on Google.

It is frustrating me because it does a daily sync and is constantly running on my phone. I searched and found help with removing from an Inc but their menu options are different and I couldn't get it to work.

How to get rid of it after making the mistake of installing it?

Motorola Droid X :: Does Backup Assistant Need To Run

I don't use this app, but noticed it is running when I check running applications. I must have opened it at one time. Can I stop this application from running or is it needed by other applications?

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?

Motorola Droid X :: Delete Backup Assistant - X 2.2

Nov 30, 2010

I just got the Droid X, realized there were so much Bloatware and used Titanium Backup to remove a lot of it. I got happy fingers and before I know it Backup Assistant was gone.

THEN>>>>I read on the forum that if I delete this my phone could brick in the future.

I've since reinstalled it from a download off the forums (thanks guys). But I'm not sure if I have the correct versions as now I have both version 2.1-update1 AND version 1.0

Would someone with an unmolested/virgin Droid X running Android 2.2 verify for me:

How many versions of the Backup Assistance Apps are running on your phone? Just one or both? And please verify the version for me.

Motorola Droid X :: Safely Delete The VZW Backup Assistant?

Jul 18, 2010

Is it possible to safely delete the VZW backup assistant?

It seems unnecessary as I have my contacts in Gmail, and it won't even sink now anyway...

I know I can just set it to not sync, but I can't stand knowing that it is there, doing nothing...

Can this be done without damaging any of the phones information?

General :: Motorola Backup Assistant For Original Droid?

Jan 29, 2013

The first step in the activation of my new Droid 4 instructs me to download Motorola's Backup Assistant to my current phone before proceeding any further, warning me that I will lose my contacts if I do not do so. My Droid has none of the menu items referred to in the download process instructions. How do I proceed? I can't afford to lose my phonebook.

Motorola Droid :: Contacts - Google Contacts And Backup

Nov 6, 2009

I have contacts in my phone that Verizon brought over from my last phone (a regular phone phone... I carry a BB for work, have for years. I also have Google Contacts I spent hours getting in order in anticipation of getting this device. I can not, for the life of me, figure out how to back up the contacts now only on the droid to the cloud OR how to get the Google contacts information down to the phone. What I want to do is keep them in Sync and do the cleanup from a laptop/desktop one time, once the nasty merge happens.

Motorola Droid :: Google Phone Is Real Google Played Out Verizon?

Dec 12, 2009

Google Phones were handed out to all Google employees. The phone is apparently going to be sold directly by Google and apparently available in January. I'm not sure who the attorneys for Verizon are, but Google must have done some deft negotiations to be able to pull this off. They just shafted Motorala, Verizon - and us - in the butt. I'm pretty sure, post Christmas, Droid updates and fixes will become non-existent as Google focuses on their own offering. Google is indeed Microsoft with a crayola logo.

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Transfer Contacts / Address Book From AT&T To Verizon?

Oct 4, 2010

I just got my Droid X today, and while I haven't had much time to play with it, I'm loving it already One thing I realized, however, is that it will be a pain to put every number from my old address book into the one on my DX. Is there any way I can do this without entering every single number manually? I have a Motorola Karma QA1 on AT&T with all my numbers on it, and I want to get them on my Droid X.

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.
