“I was an HTC user before, but now I want to change to use Samsung phone. So I bought a new Samsung Galaxy S9 a week ago. Soon I find it’s bad to lose all the contacts and I have to re-create a new contact address book one by one. I realized that if I had backed up my contacts, things would be much easier. How can I backup Samsung contacts? Can anyone give me some tips? Thanks!”
You’ve never known what's the importance of backing up your phone data until you encounter data loss. Especially when you lose some important data like contacts. The contact book is not only a useful tool to store all contacts numbers but also a powerful tool to keep all contact information such as email address, social media account, address and more.
Cloud is a convenient way to back up your Samsung contacts. It is easy to set auto-sync Android data on device directly if you don’t want to do it on your computer. You can check below simple steps to backup Samsung contacts to cloud.
1. Access the Accounts & Sync option on your device by forwarding to Settings.
2. Turn on Auto-sync data option and tap your Google account. Tick the Contacts box and then press Sync now.
3. When the sync is done, access the same Gmail account on PC and check your contacts. Next time you need to a transfer Google contacts to android phone, you can just go to sign in your Gmail account.
In some cases, the backing up process may cause data loss. Therefore, you will need a professional third-party program to back up your Samsung contacts without losing data.
