Even if you do not set up a Backup Assistant account on your new Droid 3, Contacts is automatically set up to save new contacts to Backup Assistant instead of your Google account! This is probably undesirable for many Android users, so here is how you change it: 1. Open Contacts 2. Hit the menu button. 3. Hit "More" 4. Select "Settings" 5. Select "Contact Storage" 6. Choose "Google" instead of "Backup Assistant" and make sure you select "Remember this choice" That should take care of it!
