    Well, your contacts are saved to your gmail account. Unless you don't ever sync your contacts. The backup assistant app is kinda redundant.

    sent from somewhere...

    This has sure confuse me.

    I believe there are two (at least) sets of contacts that may or may not be backed up. Backup Assistant backs up your "phone contacts". Google Contacts deals with those contacts associated with your Google Contacts.

    When you add a new contact, it gives you the option of creating a "phone contact" or a "Google Contact" contact. Something like that.

    So you may want to be sure that both are working.
