Contact backup applications for Windows® and BlackBerry® users.

We appreciate your loyalty. Because you deserve the best wireless experience possible, we're always looking for ways to improve phone features and applications. And that means from time to time, we have to retire some older, outdated applications.

As of September 30th, 2013 customers with Smartphone devices will no longer be able to access their My Contacts Backup account. The good news is we have alternative solutions that will give you the functionality you need.

We understand that accidents happen. With Device Protection you won't have to spend hundreds of dollars in case of theft, loss or accidental damage to your wireless device. It also covers mechanical or electrical breakdown losses after the manufacturer's warranty expires.

Please find below some alternative apps that other Windows and BlackBerry™ users back up their contacts with.
