Contact Backup Assistant Error
MattyWat
Newbie

About 2 or 3 days ago, I started getting an error when Backup Assistant tries to sync. It gives no specifics, just says "Communication Error". If I look at the last backup status, it gives the last date and time that I or the phone tried to do so and it says that it failed. I have been reading that the only way to get around this is a factory reset. I am hoping for some other alternatives, as I don't want to have to re-download & install all my apps & etc again... (In the cloud app, it gives the last backup date of 12/18.)

This is very discouraging for a new Verizon customer...
