Back that thang up!!!
I just backed up all my contacts up to backup assistance for existing Verizon customers. Its as easy as downloading the app for your current phone, making a pin# to restore them later, and then letting your phone do the rest of the work(Blackberry in my case). Itunes just released our first exclusive app just for transferring from Verizon's backup assist to your new ViP. Its free and only uses 1mb of data to backup. Do this before disconnecting you current phone.

Alternatives to BackupAssistant are also possible - gMail will sync contacts & calendars to iPhone4... and iTunes can sync with mail programs... and, you can use BackupAssistant to export a CSV file, or v-card file that you can import to your computer and sync via iTunes.
The other thing to keep in mind is saved voicemails - if you have anything you want to keep, get them saved one way or another before activating your new iPhone.

I was extremely happy about this. The backup assistant has helped me several time. Its good to see Big Red getting things ready BEFORE launch time so that everything is up and running. Lets hope everything goes smoothly tonight/tomorrow morning.

I'm more interested in exporting the backupassistant file to my pc, somehow syncing it with my iTunes, and loading them on the phone that way.
Sadly, I'm not very well trained on iTunes, or the iPhone, yet..
Is there a thread somewhere that explains how to do this in detail?

All one needs to do is sign in to their website for BackupAssistant - select all, click the actions drop-down, and select the type of output desired... sand save that file to their computer; then in their mail program of choice, they'd open the address book, and find the menu command to import - then choose the file they saved.... there may be an option to do some field mapping to make sure data ends up in the right places... and then import. Once that's done, you set up iTunes to sync as you desire.
