    Wirefly..I am confused...

    I have ordered a new maxx from them and was going to take it to a verizon store to have them transfer my pics,contacts and music from my eris to the maxx.
    So I recieved an email after the order that says not to have verizon activate it. What is that all about?? I may just return it when I get it as I have heard that best buy will match the wirefly price.
    Wirefly tried to offer their cloud to transfer my data but it is a reverse process to cancel it.No thanks that is a pain to cancel,I've been through similar scenario before.
    I don't get why they don't want me going to a store to activate. It makes me uncomfortable.

    Call them and ask. I'm sure it isn't a double secret reason that you aren't allowed to know. I've purchased two phones through them so far and my third will be next week. Honestly I don't want anyone in a verizon store touching my new phone. You can very easily transfer all your own pictures & music by moving them to a computer then onto a SD card. Put the SD card in your phone and wallah, your pictures and music are on your phone. Contacts will transfer over to your new phone as soon as you log into your gmail account. That is provided you have all your contacts saved as google contacts and not on the phone. Anymore questions let me know.

    I don't know if this works on the Iris but it works on every Android phone I have ever worked with. About your contacts...go into contracts, press menu, then select import/export and select export to sdcard. That will create a .vcf file on your sdcard. When you get your new phone place that sdcard in your phone, open contacts and select import/export and import the vcf file on your sdcard to your contacts. Your contacts will now be transfered from your sdcard to your phone's contacts file. Make sure you designate them as google contacts so that your contacts will always be sync'd with your google account.

    You can also log into Google.com. sign in. Go to contacts. And then import them so they are saved as Google contacts..

    If I'm not mistaken, when he entered contacts into his phone if he hadn't selected "google contacts" but instead selected "phone contacts" those contacts will not be in google. That is the way it used to be anyway.

    You're right, there is a way to get them onto your Google account, it's a small pain. I've had to do it for a couple customers over in our store (not corp lol) You have to download a file manager that's free and go to your contacts and make a CVS file. You have find that file with the manager and put it right on your SD card on phone memory. plug it into your computer, open up your gmail contacts, import the CVS file on your phone and refresh it. All the contacts should be there. If you need help or better explination PM and i'll do my best

    That would only save the contacts he puts on the phone later. The ones on his phone now won't be saved to Google

    Hmmm interesting, how would it know what's new and what's in the phone if you sync the contacts to gmail? In contacts-> menu-> settings-> contact storage..it does say choose an account to store new contacts but I'm not understanding how sync to gmail would only save new contacts.
