    New to the forum with a problem on my s3. My back up assist is saving all my zinio magazines and i cant figure out how to stop only that from being saved. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Go into settings, then applications, then, all - find backup assistant and disable it. I had the same problem.

    Yes, I didn't know anyone actually used Backup Assistant with a smartphone... I disable mine I can't stand it, along with any other additional service Verizon offers or forces us to keep our phone.

    I was the same way. But my last phone (droid 2) broke and i couldnt i lost all my pictures. So back up assist could have saved me there.

    In my Dad's case it was actually really cool - his account had all these old pictures from old phones we didn't even know had been backed up. But now I just use Google Plus to back up my photos and turn my backup assistant off. It was always running not matter how I tweaked the settings and driving me nuts. Google+ is, IMO, way less irritating.
