AK is Alaska not Arkansas.

What are you referring to? Their phone numbers have the Alaska area code? Update their address to the right location?

Address there is only a drop down for state and you can't leave it blank so

swalsh3030 It is important to have your contact disply the correct information. Let's get a few more details. Are you trying to add a Canadian Province when you edit thie address in your phone contact list?

When you add the address in backup assistant it only has a drop down box

for the state i have to go to my phone and edit the address it's a pain but

it works when you have a lot of addresses to enter doing it on the back up

assistant is faster but then i have to go to my phone to edit it

If you are using an android device, you do have the option to save the contacts to your Gmail account. You can then edit them to you hearts content via the website in your browser. Once completed it will sync automatically to the phone.

I haven't needed to used Backup Assistant since 2009 because the contacts are now stored on my Gmail account.

Does the drop-down not list the abbreviations for Canadian Provinces?

Have you tried adding the addresses through your Google/Gmail account via the website and have it sync to the phone?
