Verizon's Backup Assistant has long been the ideal app for backing up contacts from their devices. As far back as my old LG VX-8300, I can remember using the app to backup contacts for easy transfer between devices. Well the guys at BerryScoop have landed some intel and it looks like the service will finally be available for BlackBerry devices as well. While most "power users" will most likely stick to Desktop Manager, the Backup Assistant will surely help new users in backing up and getting their contacts off their old Verizon devices to a shiny new BlackBerry. Users will be able to both manually backup as well as set a backup schedule. From the looks of it, the app will be free for Verizon customers and should drop on March 9th.
