How To Backup Your Phone Contacts To Your Computer Using Gmail

Have you ever thought of transferring your phone contacts to your computer because you need it for something? You cannot seem to find a way around it and you start copying the numbers to your system one by one. Boy, that’s going to take a lot of time and it will eventually become frustrating.

There’s always an efficient way to go around solving a problem including this particular Herculean task .  I will be using an Android phone as an example because no one uses Android OS without having a Gmail account.

Let’s get down to business! Automatically your Android phone synchronizes your contacts with your Gmail account unless you have disabled the settings. If you’ve disabled do not panic, go to your phone settings and activate it. Sign-in to your Gmail account on your computer, click on the checked black box beside the alarm icon at the top-right side of your screen to bring out some options there.
