    For more information, visit the Backup Assistant℠ website.

    Business Customers: The Backup Assistant℠ website link will take you to Media Center where you will need to sign in; this is not your My Business Account or Verizon Enterprise Center login. If you are not already registered for Media Center, you will need to click on the “Register” link below the “Sign In” button, and follow the prompts. If you are unable to register, contact your company’s Wireless Program Manager. Please note that not all companies enable access to the applications in Media Center.

If you are not already registered for Media Center, you will need to click on the “Register” link below the “Sign In” button, and follow the prompts. If you are unable to register, contact your company’s Wireless Program Manager. Please note that not all companies enable access to the applications in Media Center.

  9. During setup, why does Backup Assistant℠ show a different number than the phone number I use for my mobile device?
    Your device actually has two numbers with which it is associated: the Mobile Internal Number (MIN) and the Mobile Directory Number (MDN). Backup Assistant℠ should only use the MDN for the service to perform correctly. In most cases these numbers are identical, but if they differ you should answer "No" when Backup Assistant℠ shows you the incorrect number during the number verification process. A SMS message will be sent your device to identify the correct number. When your correct number is shown, select "Yes" to continue the installation. Standard text messaging rates apply.

    For detailed instructions on changing the schedule of automatic backups refer to the “Backup Contacts” section of the How to Use Guide: Backup Assistant℠.
