    Has anybody tried backup assistant on this phone yet? I tried it the day I got the phone and I was told the DX is not compatable with BA. They had to transfer contacts device to device for me. Just wondering. It did not work last week.

    I used it on my old flip phone. It let me export to a file, then in gmail I imported those contacts when I got my droid.

    You have no need of BA because your phone can sync your contacts to the web. Add a contact on gmail, it ends up on your phone. Delete one from your phone and its gone from the web.

    I used it and got all my contacts back from my old phone. They went through the motions of transferrring my contacts (via some cable setup they had) at Best Buy, but when I looked on the phone, nothing was there. I had used backup assistant on my old phone (Samsung Alias) a couple of weeks ago, and hadn't made any contact changes since then. The backup assistant launched from the X and synced up all of my old contacts. I have launched it since then as well, without any issue or errors. I also set up a recurring sync to run every day at midnight, but THAT does not appear to be working. Manaul syncs (by hitting the "sync now" button) work fine....I just ran one to verify, in fact.
