What model of phone is your old phone? What is your new phone model? Did you have BA installed on the old phone? Did you have a MyVerizon account for the old phone to access the Backup Assistant?

So many questions generated from the tiny bit of information you have given so far.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Hi murryrob,

The new phone number would only be linked  to your Backup Assistant on the old phone if you changed your number before changing the phone. You can run Backup Assistant on the new phone to see if anything transfers over. If nothing does, your option will be to take both phones to a Verizon store where they can transfer the contacts from one phone to the other.

Thanks,
