    So I got my new Verizon iphone today and while I'm a total newbie, I've got so far as to make a call on the thing and download the free app for getting my verizon contacts out of my Verizon Backup Assistant. It doesn't want to do it. It tries for a long while and a pinwheel turns, then every time I get a message saying the app has lost its network connection and to please RETRY. Any ideas?

    Make sure you aren't on WiFi. I haven't tried yet but apparently you have to be on VZW 3G for that to work.

    I used google sync on my old phone and then told iTunes during setup to import my contacts from there. It worked quickly, I'll have to remove a few items that were in gmail before I did the sync. Still painless and requires no bloatware. Fwiw

    Yup. That's the key--if WiFi is turned on, it won't work. Thanks to rlav for the tip! :)
