On the newer phones, Verizion has added there backup assistance, which I have lever used. On my wife's Droid 3 it was set by default to back up to Verzion, but you could change it to back up to Google. On my sister's new RAZR I did not see this option in the menus only to set up for Backup assastace. How can I make Google default? I really don't see the point of the verizion thing.
