Go to the verizon website and login then find the backup assistant section and export a csv of your contacts and then transfer it on to either your SD card or your gmail contacts online. If you transfer it to the SD then you can import it in to your contacts, and if you export it to good then it should sync to your phone next time it does a data sync.
It happens all the time. Droid two tends to back yo contacts exclusively to backup assistant and not to Google. After you export the contacts from backup assistant and follow either of my methods for getting them on to your phone they should properly be syncd to Google.
I backed it up, but when Liberty loaded it took everything off...Im stuck now, crap, other things going on now too, cant open stuff .....I copied everything from my phone to my computer, I have SPR, sorry for the problems....do I need to load SPR?
You can use titanium backup to freeze them if you have the paid version or use the liberty toolbox to back them pp and then remove them from the app management area. Just make sure you only remove apps like blockbuster and Skype and not random system apps.
