    So, if you go into Settings, Accounts & sync can you confirm that the Backup Assistant option has a grey sync icon?

    No, it doesn't. It is in color.

    In that case, there's your answer - at some point in time it must have been configured (albeit incomplete). Disable the account and you should be good to go (I've not got my phone anywhere near me so I can't remember the exact steps to do so).

    Here's a rather complete post on Disabling Backup Assistant. Although the poster states "Droid Incredible" I'd think it would apply to any VZW Android based phone (though I may be wrong on that!)
