    Is there any way to stop backup assistant from syncing TO my phone? I just got a Vortex last month and it is very annoying to have 2 copies of everyone's info in each contact.
    Here is an example of what I get because of this:

    Home - 867-5309
    Home - 8675309

    If there isn't any way to stop the syncing is there any way to get rid of the backup assistant?
    any way besides rooting? I might root my phone eventually.

    Go into "Settings" and select "Accounts & sync". Then, You can turn off "Auto-sync" which is right below "Background data".
