    Are you talking about backing up your media?

    You can back that up very easily. Plug into your computer via USB. Mount as a disk.
    Cope all your files over from your phone to the computer.

    Your Incredible is a google phone. Google backs up your contacts and your apps. You don't need to do it on your computer. Contacts are backed up in Gmail, applications in the Market.

    Really? News to me, want to tell me how that works?

    Verizon would back up your contacts on prior phones with the "my backup" that they have but I don't know any way that they back up your contacts with the Incredible.

    VIA the Verizon "backup assistant"

    brings em from phone to website. Then you can update from there.

    Thas how they got my contacts/phone #s into it

    Yes. But you no longer have that with your phone. That was with your old phone.

    Verizon doesn't back up contacts on Google phones. Backup assistant works with most Verizon phones, but not with a Google phone.

    I got my DI 5 days ago, and used the Backup Assistant from Verizon to get my contacts from my old phone to the DI. And I created my Gmail account at the same time, 5 days ago...

    However, I have logged into my Gmail account many times and 'do not' see any of my contacts there at all. So, how is Google backing up my contacts exactly? :blink:

    I believe that is because you have to enter your contacts as "google contacts" rather than phone contacts.
