Fresh off my first factory reset I rush here to perhaps save you my fate.
Once you enable Verizon backup on your phone you can not cut it off.
Unless you do a factory reset and never sign up for it.
It is better to import your contacts into your Google gmail by making a file and importing it to your gmail account so all of them are stored on gmail. If you import from Verizon backup and gmail you get half your contacts on gmail and half on Verizon. And constant reminders that you can not update or change contacts not on gmail.
Once started Verizon backup can not be stopped. It will update daily burning data for no good reason. There is no off. There is no opting back out. There is no stopping it without rooting or reset. Stay away! Use the import contacts feature of gmail so all your contacts are stored and backed up where they should be...online on gmail! And you CAN stop that sync/backup anytime you want.
Thank you Google for doing it right.
(F U Verizon for yet again f-ing up a great phone with yet another piece of bloatware that we can not get rid of and burns through our costly data!)
You have been warned, LOL!
