So, you just received your shiney new Verizon iPhone 4 and are faced with the possibly daunting task of moving your contacts list over to it. If your old Verizon phone was compatible with Verizon’s Backup Assistant and you backed up your old phone, the task may be a bit less daunting using this free iPhone app provided by Verizon Wireless.

VZ Transfer

Here’s a pair of tips based on user comments in the app’s Customer Reviews section.

2. Have a pen and paper available. A code to complete the transfer process is sent by text message.
