You could import the file into your gmail account on the desktop and use Google as a backup rather than VzW's cloud. There also should be an option within the phone's People app to import the file.
I have like 62 windows open.....ugh
Am I taking the file I already exported from cloud and sending it to google? I don't see anything along the lines of importing or contacts.
Or should I be getting back to the vzw cloud and exporting it via a different option?
