    Nearly every time I turn on my phone, it starts up in the Backup Assistant mode.

    Is there ANY WAY to turn this off (minus root)?

    I've changed the sync time to 00:00-6:00 but it still comes up throughout the day.

    Not to mention, every attempt is a failure.

    Any ideas?

    Minus root? Not that I know of. You might be stuck rooting, but it's not all that bad. :D

    Well...I powerd down and re-powered. Seems to have kept it off the screen for a couple of hours.

    We'll see how it goes from here.

    So how does one chane to get the PIN for backup assistant. The instructions tell me to go to the verizonwireless/backupassitant site to change the pin. There is nothing there to change the pin. :mad:

    What does backup assistant do besides store contacts. Looks useless and annoying.

    So how does one shut down backup assistant without starting all over again?

    There doesn't appear to be a way to turn it off without either 1) doing a factory reset, or 2) rooting and freezing it. I don't know how the carriers keep getting away with installing this bloatware without the option to uninstall. The obvious parallel is the PC market, where most vendors put their own custo software preinstalled when you buy a machine. But you always have the option of uninstalling it. On our phones, the only way to do it is the root your phone, and even then it can cause problems without using a custom ROM.
