Verizon Cloud Changes / Updates
  1. Verizon Cloud is changing to a paid, premium media storage service.

    Get 500 GB of Verizon Cloud storage included with Above Unlimited.



  3. The steps to get Verizon Cloud vary based on the type of device you're using.

    Note: If you have Above Unlimited, 500 GB of Verizon Cloud is included and already on your account. You don't need to add it separately.

    • Android (includes smartphones and tablets) - Verizon Cloud may already be on your device. Open the App list on your device and look for Verizon Cloud. If you don't see it, search for Verizon Cloud in the Google Play Store on your device, and download it.

      Note: If Verizon Cloud doesn't come up in the search results, your device may not be compatible.

    • iOS (includes iPhone® and iPad®) - Search for and download the Verizon Cloud app from the Apple App Store. If you currently use Backup Assistant Plus on your iOS device, you'll need to uninstall the Backup Assistant Plus app and install the latest version of Verizon Cloud instead.

    • Computer (Windows or Mac) - To download the Verizon Cloud app to your computer, visit the Desktop Apps Verizon Cloud page and select the version for your computer's operating system.

    • On the Web - Once you've activated Verizon Cloud on your mobile device, you can access your cloud content online from your web browser through the Cloud website.

      Note: Use your mobile number and My Verizon Password to sign in to the Verizon Cloud website.


  4. Verizon Cloud and Backup Assistant PlusSM aren't designed for secure transmission or storage of personal healthcare information. Therefore, they must not be used to store or transmit Protected Health Information (PHI) as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 and accompanying regulations (collectively, "HIPAA").

    If your business is a Covered Entity or Business Associate as defined by HIPAA, or if your business otherwise doesn't want its users to save content other than contacts to these services, you must block these services.

    To block Verizon Cloud and Backup Assistant Plus for individual lines on your business account:

    1. Go to My Business Account.
    2. In the Account Maintenance tab, click Wireless Numbers and Users.
    3. Select the phone number you want to manage.
    4. In the Actions dropdown, click Add or Remove Features.
    5. In the Block Services window, check the box for Block Verizon Cloud.
    6. Click Continue in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
    7. Click Submit on the Order Confirmation page.

    You'll receive an email confirming the change.

    You can also block Verizon Cloud by contacting your Global Enterprise Advisor or by contacting one of our representatives by clicking the Chat with us button at the bottom right corner of this page.

    Note: Blocking Verizon Cloud will restrict users from accessing and storing any content except contacts in Verizon Cloud and Backup Assistant Plus.



Using Verizon Cloud
  1. iOS users:

    1. Open the Verizon Cloud app on your iPhone or iPad.
    2. Tap Set Up Verizon Cloud.
      • Scroll through Verizon Cloud features, or tap Dismiss to move to the next setup screen.
    3. Tap Backup Now on the welcome screen to start the process.
      • When asked "Verizon Cloud Would Like to Access Your Contacts", tap OK to back up your contacts.
      • When asked "Verizon Cloud Would Like to Access Your Photos" tap OK to back up your photos.
        • If you select Don't Allow, photos on your device won't be backed up to Verizon Cloud.
    4. You can automatically back up your content during location changes by tapping Always Allow on "Allow Verizon Cloud to access your location?"
    5. Verizon Cloud will then begin the back up process.

    Android users:

    1. Open Verizon Cloud on your device and tap Get Started.
      • If you don't see the app on your device, you can download it from Google Play Store.
    2. Select the device content you want to back up, such as contacts, photos or music, and tap NEXT.
    3. Select an existing email address to complete the set up process, and tap NEXT.
      • You can add a new email address by tapping Other email address.
    4. Scroll through Verizon Cloud features or tap Dismiss to move to the next setup screen.
    5. Tap the message "Cloud is waiting for Wi-Fi to backup" to begin a backup.
      • If connected to Wi-Fi, backup begins automatically.


  2. When you open the Verizon Cloud app for the first time on your mobile device, you'll go through a setup process. After that process is complete, your contacts will automatically sync at a regularly scheduled time. If you're using an Android device, your Google contacts will also sync with Verizon Cloud. The Verizon Cloud app will confirm that your contacts are being synced.

    If you think your contacts aren't being synced by Verizon Cloud, go to the Settings menu of the Verizon Cloud app and make sure that the Contacts box is checked under the "What to back up" option. By doing this, you've successfully activated Contacts Sync from Verizon Cloud.

    If you upgrade or switch to a different compatible device, your contacts will transfer to your new device along with all of your other Verizon Cloud content.



  3. Each mobile number on your account will have a separate Verizon Cloud account associated with it, if it subscribes to the service. To access the content stored in the cloud for a specific device, you have to sign in to the Verizon Cloud website using that device's mobile number and My Verizon Password.

    You can't view the cloud content for all of your devices at once, even as the Account Owner. You can only see the cloud content associated with the specific mobile number you sign in under.

    Note: Tablets also have a mobile number assigned to them, which you can use to sign in to Verizon Cloud. If you sign in with your tablet number, you'll access the cloud specific to your tablet. If you sign in with your mobile phone number, you can view, sync and back up to your phone's Cloud account. If you don't know your tablet's mobile number, you can find it on the My Devices page in My Verizon.



  4. Verizon Cloud for iOS will not automatically back up your video files by default. You'll need to activate the automatic video backup setting first.

    To activate automatic video backup on Verizon Cloud for iOS:

    1. Go to the Settings menu of the Verizon Cloud app.
    2. On the Backup Settings screen, check the box for Videos.

    You've successfully activated automatic video backup. The videos on your device will be backed up the next time Verizon Cloud syncs.



  5. If you're on a device that supports the syncing of text messages and call logs to Verizon Cloud, you won't be able to access that content using the app itself. Instead, you can manage what's in the Cloud from the standard text messaging and calling apps on your device. For example, deleting a text message from the messaging app will also delete the message from Verizon Cloud.

    Note: Disabling the sync of text messages or call logs can result in differences between what's on your device and what's in your cloud storage.



  6. When you first sync your device with Verizon Cloud, all text messages from the last 90 days will sync to the cloud. From that time, all new text messages sent or received on your device will also sync to the cloud.

    When you switch to a new device, all your text messages saved in Verizon Cloud will be restored to your new device.

    Notes:

    • The first time you sync to Verizon Cloud may take a long time, depending on how many text messages and how much other content you have to sync. For your first sync, always use Wi-Fi, with your device connected to a wall outlet until the process is complete.


  7. It depends. When you delete a file from your device, the following file types will be:

    • Saved in the cloud
      • Pictures
      • Videos
      • Songs
      • Documents
    • Deleted from the cloud
      • Contacts
      • Text and multimedia messages
      • Call logs

    Note: If you delete a contact with the Verizon Cloud website, that contact will also be deleted from your phone.



  8. Before completing this action, make sure your contacts in the cloud are up to date. You may want to perform another backup to the cloud from your old phone, if you can.

    To sync your contacts from the cloud to your new phone:

    1. Open the Verizon Cloud app from your new phone's App menu.

      Note: If Verizon Cloud isn't listed in your App menu, you'll need to download the Verizon Cloud app to your new phone.

    2. Tap Get Started.

    3. Select the types of files you want restored to your new phone from the cloud.

      Note: This initial sync could take a long time, depending on how much content you select. The first time you sync, plug your device into a wall charger and connect to Wi-Fi until the process is complete. When you're connected to Wi-Fi you won't be charged for any data you use because you aren't using the Verizon Wireless network.

    4. Tap OK.

    You've successfully synced your content from the cloud to your new phone.



  9. To download content from your cloud storage:

    1. Open the Verizon Cloud app on your mobile device.

    2. Select the content type (e.g., music, pictures, videos, documents) you'd like to download.

    3. Locate the file you want to download, and then touch and hold the file name to select it.

      Note: If you're using an Apple device, you'll have to tap the Edit button on the top right of the screen, and then tap the file you'd like to download.

    4. From the available Menu options that appear, tap Download.

    You've successfully downloaded content from the cloud to your device.



  10. We have step-by-step instructions for downloading media from Verizon Cloud to your Mac or Windows computer:

    Note: This process only affects content stored in Verizon Cloud. Content stored on your local device, but deleted from Verizon Cloud, will remain on your device.



  11. Verizon Cloud automatically uploads all the data for each content type you've set it to sync (e.g., pictures, videos, etc.). As long as you choose to sync a content type and have room in your account to store it, everything you have on your mobile device will be uploaded to Verizon Cloud.

    You can also view your media with the Verizon Cloud website to see what is backed up in your account.



  12. That depends on what kind of network you're connected to at the time.

    Syncing over Wi-Fi
    - If you keep Verizon Cloud in "Wi-Fi only" mode and always use Wi-Fi when syncing or streaming content, you won't be charged for data usage.

    Syncing over the Verizon Wireless network using data - If your device isn't connected to a Wi-Fi network, data charges may apply when uploading, downloading or streaming a file with the Verizon Cloud app, and you'll be charged according to your data plan.

    Get unlimited data and 500 GB of Verizon Cloud storage included with Above Unlimited.



  13. To upload pictures and videos to your Verizon Cloud account directly from your basic phone:

    1. Select the picture or video you want to upload.
    2. Select Options.
    3. Scroll down and select To PIX Place or To Online Album.

    You've successfully uploaded your picture or video to Verizon Cloud.



  14. Yes, Verizon Cloud backs up from multiple locations depending on the device type.
