How to Download Verizon Wireless Backup Assistant

By Michael Butler

Backup Assistant from Verizon Wireless stores a copy of your phone's address book on a website. If you ever lose your phone, you can retrieve your address book from the website and synchronize it with a new phone. This saves you the hassle of having to manually reenter all of the contact details in your new phone's address book.

Step 1

Select your phone's main menu, then select either "Media Center" or "Get it Now," depending on which is available for your phone.

Step 2

Select either "Browse & Download" or "Tools on the Go."

Step 3

Click "Get New Applications," followed by "Business Tools / Information."

Step 4

Scroll through the applications list and select "Backup Assistant." Click "OK." Backup Assistant will download to your phone.
