  2. You will be prompted to enter the four- to eight-digit PIN you created when you activated Backup Assistant. If you forgot your PIN, tap “Forgot PIN” to have it sent to your device.
    Note: You will not be able to have the PIN sent to your device if the feature was disabled during initial setup of Backup Assistant.

Any contacts in the Backup Assistant server will be saved to your device. Changes to your address book will continue to be backed up on a daily basis.
