    Problem with syncing with backup assistant

    Hi...I am a first time user here to this forum and first timer for the android Fascinate. I LOVE this phone, however I am having one issue so far. I entered all my info on the Verizon "backup assistance" (contacts, ph #'s & downloaded pictures for some of them) and all went over to my phone except the pictures. I tried re-doing and rebooting but still just sync's the info and not the pic's. Has anyone got any solutions to this or had this problem too? Thanks!! RLK

    I used backup assistant to transfer all of my contact information to my Fascinate and it didn't transfer the pictures that were associated with my contacts either. I had to redo them manually but it wasn't a big deal for me as I only had 3 or 4 contacts with pictures.
    Hopefully someone else will be able to offer a better solution for you.

    I'm not sure that it transfers pictures. Have you checked Verizon's online support for Backup Assistant?

    Thanks for the comments. I ended up going to my facebook albums and downloaded pic's to associate with some of my contacts I had pic's for. That worked good so it's really not a problem now but just strange. I really love the phone though. Been trying out and playing with apps all day since being snowed in here in IL. Couldn't have got it at a better time!!

    As a Samsung phone user, you must be familiar with Samsung Kies, which is primarily designed for Samsung users to backup and restore Samsung phone data on PC. To backup Samsung on computer by using Samsung Kies, you can follow the easy steps in the below:

    Step 1. Build a connection between Samsung and Kies
    At first, you need to connect your Samsung Galaxy to your computer with a USB cable. Then you should select the option of "Backup & Restore" on the Kies' main interface.

    Step 2. Backup Samsung data to PC
    Now you can select "Data Backup" option in this section and tap on the data categories you want to backup. After the data selection, you can click the "Backup" option to begin the Samsung 's backup process.

    According to the reviews, there are several major factors may lead to data loss from Android mobile phone, such as system crashes, virus infection, improper operations, and so on. Thus, it is very sensible to backup Android phone to computer before losing files from your phone all of a sudden. However, you are not able to easily save contacts and messages to the computer via USB just as you usually do to export photos and videos. That's because contacts and text messages are always stored on the internal memory of the phone or the SIM card, instead of the SD card where we often save media files. Then, if you want to completely backup the whole files on your Android smart phone to the PC, you should turn to an assistant program.


    Coolmuster Android Sync Manager, which helps users sync Android phone to PC with just a few simple clicks. It supports to copy contacts, SMS messages, photos, videos, apps, music, books and various documents on your Android device. In addition, this program allows you to preview the details before exporting. So that you can choose to transfer the whole or part of the files as you want. After marking your needed data, you are able to sync them to your computer in batches, which can be pretty time-saving.
