Android contacts mean a lot to us, and it is always important to backup contacts on Android from time to time. To make you flexible in doing this, we hereby present several methods to help:

  • Backup Android contacts with Google account: You can go to Settings and choose Accounts to sync all the local contacts data to the cloud.
  • Backup Android Contacts to SD card: Just export all the contacts to a vCard file and save it to the SD card. Simple stuff.
  • Backup Android contacts to SIM card: You can also save all the contacts to your SIM card. But most SIM cards save only 200 contacts or so.
