Syncing contacts with Gmail account comes in handy when you want to root/ update the firmware of your phone. As you know, while rooting or updating firmware you’re risking to damage data files, SMS text messages and contacts that could get corrupted or lost. That’s the reason I’ve created this article, to help you sync the stored Contacts in your Android phone with your Gmail account successfully.
Before moving to the tutorial guide you need to make sure that your Contacts are linked with the Gmail Account.
Open Contacts.
Press the Menu/ Settings button.
Select ‘Merge with Google’ and then confirm the action. In case you have more than one Gmail accounts then select the one you wish to use as default to host your contacts.
When everything has been successfully merged, a pop-up message will notify you.
Here’s how to sync your contacts with the Gmail account:
Make sure that you have Gmail installed on your device.
Open the App Drawer and go to Settings, then go to ‘Accounts and Sync’.
Enable the Accounts and syncing service.
Select your Gmail account from the e-mail accounts setup .
Make sure that you’ve enabled ‘Sync Contacts’ option.
Press ‘Sync now’ button and wait until all the phone contacts have been successfully synchronized with your gmail account.
Now open Gmail in your computer’s web browser and click the Gmail text link that is listed on the upper left side of the Gmail profile.
Select Contacts and then you should see a page where all the contacts from your Android smartphone have been stored.
That should do it. If you have any other extra questions then please feel free to ask me in comments.
After you’ve backed up/ synced contacts from your Android phone and then you’ve also changed the ROM or, you’ve rooted the phone and selected factory reset, then you will need to sync again the Gmail account with your phone and, all the phone numbers will be restored. Otherwise all the contacts will be removed from your phone.
