    Just got my new Windows Phone 7 from Verizon yesterday. I backed up my contacts using Verizon Backup Assistant but now cannot seem to get the contacts back into the new Windows Phone 7. Any ideas?

    Never mind... I just found out from Verizon that the Verizon Backup Assistant does not work with the Windows Phone 7..... to bad.

    Just back them up to either Hotmail, Live or Gmail. I have mine in Gmail.

    I guess that would work if the account were with Hotmail, Live or GMail. However... they are not...

    WP7 requires you to enter a Live account. This is where contacts are backed up and stored by default, used to purchase apps, and upload to Skydrive. Unless you have another account that you can back up your contacts with then importing them to your Live account would be an option.
