[Verizon Wireless offers new Backup Assistant service developed by FusionOne which automatically makes backup copies of a subscriber's address book.]
Bedminster, NJ & San Jose, Calif. -- Verizon Wireless and FusionOne announced today the availability of Backup Assistant(TM) in the Get It Now virtual store. Developed and hosted by FusionOne and available for download to Verizon Wireless Get It Now customers, Backup Assistant automatically safeguards customers' address books against phone loss, damage or theft, and eliminates the need to manually transfer contacts when a phone is replaced or upgraded.
Verizon Wireless customers with select Get It Now-enabled phones can sign up for Backup Assistant and complete their first backup in a matter of minutes. Backup Assistant then performs secure backups automatically -- when the phone is not in use, on a schedule the user selects -- only connecting to the network if information in the address book has changed.
Verizon Wireless Get It Now customers can find Backup Assistant in the getGOING shopping aisle in the Get It Now virtual store. Verizon Wireless customers with select Get It Now-enabled phones can download Backup Assistant for $1.99 monthly access.
Once customers sign up for Backup Assistant they can also view, edit or print their mobile phone address books online by logging on to http://www.verizonwireless.com/backupassistant and entering their mobile number and security PIN code. Any changes made to the online address book will automatically synchronize back to the mobile phone address book in a matter of seconds.
