How Can I Restore Contacts on android Devices?
Is there a way to backup the contacts on my Android phone so I can restore it after a factory resetting or changing the phone to a new one. Without using Google Contacts and that kind of stuff? Is there a way as easy as copy and paste? Thanks
Don’t worry. With a Android Contacts Manager tool, you can make a backup and restore of all your Android contacts and other data like call logs, SMS, songs, videos, photos and even apps. So no matter you completely wipe your phone, or copy android contacts for changing to a new phone, you can restore your contacts just in an easy way.
As soon as you follow me to the Android backup app MobileGo Android Manager. If you’re using a Mac, you should turn to Android Manager for Mac. Now just download the right version and follow the steps below.
How to Backup and Restore Contacts on Android Phone?
Step 1. Launch this Android Contacts Backup and Restore Tool
Please note the following guide takes MobileGo Windows version as example. The way to finish contacts restoring on Mac is almost the same. Just make sure you’ve downloaded the right version according to your situation.
Run the Android Contacts Backup tool after installing it on your computer.
Connect your Android phone with a USB cable or via Wi-Fi. (Wi-Fi connection is only available for Windows.) Here you don’t need to take the SD card out of the phone. The program will detect your device and show it in the main interface as below.
Step 2. Backup contacts on your Android phone
Click "Contacts" tab in the left column to open Contact Management windows. and on the Contacts page, then click the "Import/Export" button and choose a corresponding action from the drop-down list. Here you can import/export contacts from vCard files, Outlook Express, Windows Address Book, Windows Mail and Outlook 2003/2007/2010.
If you have stored some contacts in Gmail, Facebook or other accounts on your phone, MobileGo for Android lets you sync these contacts to your phone easily.
Note: Here you can manage Android contacts via PC easily, such as edit, add new contacts, and find duplicate contacts. Just click "De-duplicate" icon to preview all duplicate contacts and select "Merge" to merge all the contacts or selected contacts.
Click "New" to open the "Add new contact" window. You can input and edit name, email, phone number, website, address, middle name,etc.
Step 3. Restore Contacts Android Smart Phone
When you need to restore the contacts on your Android, you need to click the "Toolkit" tab in the left column and click "Restore" button to get them back.
Click the blue Restore button. Then a file browser window will appear. Select "Contact" box and click "Restore" button to complete contacts restoring process.
"Backup before Restore" Option: After you click "Restore" a dialogue box will appear with three options: Backup, Don’t Back Up or Cancel.
Unless you’ve already backed up your phone immediately before, I think you should backup at this point, as system restoration is a common cause of partial data loss.
Note: During the Restore process, please don’t disconnect your device. Otherwise, the Restore will fail.
