    Unhappy Motorola Backup Assistant for Original Droid

    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.

    The original Droid uses Google for calendar/contacts info...

    You do not need to use Verizon's Backup Assistant even on your new Droid 4. Just log in to your gmail/google account. Set up your Droid 4 to sync with Google (calendar/contacts) only and then when you switch devices or even more so if you switch to a different carrier, your contacts/calendar info will all be there....sync'd in Google's world, not Verizon's.


    Just skip the Backup Assistant stuff on the Droid 4.
