Just sync your contacts to your gmail account. Then sync your iphone with gmail. No need for backup assistant and you'll always have that contact info as long as any smart phone you use can sync with gmail. Which I think right now is pretty much all of them.

If you are on Android already, aren't you by default synching everything to Gmail? :confused:

The op said he's using backup assistant. Makes more sense to use gmail since he obviously has an account.

Enter your Gmail account on the iPhone through the Exchange setting, not the Gmail setting. The Exchange option allows you to sync contacts, unlike the Gmail option.

I prefer to keep all of my contacts on my phone seperate from my gmail contacts.
