VZ Contact Transfer will move contacts from Verizon's cloud to your iPhone

Chris Ziegler

If you're upgrading from a Verizon dumbphone all the way up to the iPhone, it's possible you were using the carrier's Backup Assistant to keep your contacts safe and secure up in the cloud -- but the fact is, you're definitely not going to be using it anymore (trust us on that one). So, what to do? Well, Big Red is helpfully providing a VZ Contact Transfer app -- already available in the App Store -- that'll move contacts down from Backup Assistant and into your iPhone's storage. Once they're there, you can do whatever you want: set up ActiveSync to get them into Google, for example, or just let them transfer up to your Mac or PC. One less reason to stay on that Coupe, right?
