Default Transferring contacts to normal phone?

Is there an easy way to transfer all my contacts from my Incredible to my LG chocolate?

Backup assistant won't work because you're not restoring to the same phone. You can go to a Verizon store and have them stransfer the contacts for free. You can also use a number of applications that will transfer them for you, but you need the usb cables for each phone. Here is one such app - Susteen DataPilot $29.95: http://www.datapilot.com/productdetail/20/producthl/Notempty

Anyone else have ideas?

I've used vzw BA on diff phones, lg dare to htc inc.
with over a yr break when i had winmo omnia , the contacts were still in BA

the choc should support BA, all you need is the free vzw account, then BA is free also

*ahhh.. i misread both phones are active , I have never tried to use BA on 2 diff active phones

Even with passcode you get some type of error?

Only the Incredible is active right now. I actually have BA, but only a few contacts are backed up on it. I'm trying to figure out if BA supports the Incredible or if there's another way of doing it.

I'm trying not to take my Incredible to the beach in fear of ruining it.

mmm...matter of fact when you activated your inc, you should have had the option of adding your contacts from BA

I completely missed that. Thanks a lot for the help

edit: When i use BA to sync, only contacts saved in BA are loaded onto the phone. I don't see an option to back up the contacts in the phone onto BA.

Sorry for the delay, work nights , up late sleep in.
Anywho, seems like if you add a contact to phone on next sync it adds it to BA.
So why not try adding a contact, sync and check online to see if it worked like you want?

menu>settings>accounts & sync>BA>sync now thats if you do not schedule or have it turned off
