    Between the BestBuy mIQ (backup) service, and the Verizon Backup Assistant service, are there any real / significant differences?


    Using a Storm2 on .320.

    was thinking of upgrading OS to .607 but wanted to wirelessly sync everything so I can wipe the device before upgrading and then sync it back.

    thanks.

    From what I understand, Backup assistant only backs up your contacts. miq backs up everything (messages, contacts/w pics, pictures from sd card). and you can send sms from your computer, view your pics, etc. when logged into your account at miqlive.com.

    So, in that case, mIQ is a "better" backup service since it lets you sync "EVERYTHING" OTA!....

    Yeah pretty much. And it syncs automatically whenever you add new contacts or pictures to your device.

    One thing to note about mIQ is that you have to have it open for it to "catch" your text messages. I have been using mIQ and it seems to work well. It uploaded my contacts and photos with little problems. The first time syncing may take quite a while depending upon how many contacts and photos that you have on your phone. Once you get thru that first upload, future syncs seem to happen quickly.
