I would think you go to MyVerizon.com and get them from there. But why are you using Backup Assistant? Why don't you back up all you contacts to your gmail account? That way as soon as you log in to you gmail account from any phone you'll ever get, all your contact will be right there.

No fuss, no muss. All you have to remember is your gmail password and viola, you're done. Verizon Backup Assistant is the first thing I disable when I get a new phone.

This.

This is the easiest way. I moved from my Dinc to the DNA and contacts all moved. Took as long as to type the PW.

However there should be an option on your backup assistant software on your phone that should allow you to do a restore somehow. I would turn the sync off and see if you can do a manual sync/restore.

Theres an option in the settings for backup assistant plus or if you go to accounts and sync in your settings you can also do it from there. Ive always used Gmail to backup my contacts as well though.
