S S S, with my getting back to you thank you for responding. I am using a Droid Turbo I'm a bit confused at what difference the kind of phone I have will help but at this point I'll try anything.
What do you mean by phone cloud?
Verizon Cloud is an app you can install (or may already be installed) on your phone. It will have a red square icon with a white cloud in it and have the label Cloud. Is that what you mean by phone cloud? If yes, then they are the same. If no, tell us what you mean by phone cloud and hopefully someone will know the difference.
Are you referring to your contacts list that gives you the option to show Google contacts, Verizon contacts (May be listed as Phone contacts) because Verizon Cloud and the Phone "cloud" contacts are the same as Verizon backs up the Phone contacts to the Cloud.
