    There are phone contacts that are backed up thourgh Verizon's backup assistant and thier are gmail contacts. Sounds like you only have the Verizon phone contacts.

    If they are in gmail, you can do a sync. If not, then go to myverizon, export your contact list, and then import it into gmail. then sync your phone and everything will be there. Find my other post on this issue for more exact instructions.

    I'd recommend keeping both contacts loaded, as I mysteriously had a contact deleted from my phone. With gmail, it was gone, but with myverizon, it was still available to restore.
