New Messaging App

The new app for tablets is a nice idea. However, why didn't VZW allow the program to sync with the backup assistant to allow the transfer  of the contacts there?  Having to manually load each person I text is a pain you know where.

Verizon Messages automatically imports contacts from Backup Assistant – both on Tablet as well as on Web. To see your contacts on tablet, please download and install backup assistant on your tablet.  Any contacts that are stored as Google contacts or local phone book, that cannot be imported at this time on tablet or web.

I did download and install the VZ Backup app, and can't log in on the tablet.  It says incorrect username and password.  Smiley Sad I tried with my username and my phone number but I cannot log in to the VZ Backup app on my tablet.

Since my iPad is WiFi connection only, that is why the app was available for me to download. I did download the app but get an error as the iPad is not A Verizon Product.

Kinda stinks since I use my VZW phone to connect.....oh well

That must be why the Backup App downloads and installs on my tablet, but won't connect - it's a wifi only with no connection to Verizon; I got it at Costco. 

The integrated texting DOES work, except it shows numbers rather than names, but the messages are there and I can send and receive texts on the tablet, which is nice.  It does kind of make sense that you would need to be connected to the Verizon network to sync the contact list.... but then again, I can get all my texts that are through the Verizon network....

O well yea i can see the Disappointment there Budone you can download it threw Wi-Fi  but can't use it)  I don't remember running into anything like that on my Razr's  I know however i wanted this certain Racing app and i could get because my Razr wasn't compatible with the App but the same App was Compatible with my Droid X a phone that is near pushing 3 years old. 

Suzy if it's ok to Ask  How Much did your iPad cost  @  Cosco  if you want you can send the Price Via  PM  Thanks b Smiley Happy

It's a Samsung Galaxy 2 tablet, 7" - a nice size, fits easily in my purse and I love it!  And I got a heck of a deal at Costco last November, it was $189.99 (regular $239.99 with a $50 instant coupon - I grabbed it!!) I'd been pricing different tablets for a possible birthday gift to myself (early December) and all were $200 and up.  The Samsung, with the SD card slot for additional memory, at that price was irresistable!
