It has always become an issue for mobile phone users to recover phone contacts each time they lose or change phones. Nowadays, we have more people using Android mobile, and as you know, Android is owned by Google. You can hardly run an Android phone if you do not have a Gmail account. So by default, we assume, everyone has his Gmail account logged into his/her Android phone.

On Android phone, you have about three different “Contact Save” options. This means if you are about to save a Phone Contact, you have the option to either save on Phone, Your Two Sims or Your Email. Nowadays. it is safer to store contacts to your Google Account. Gmail offers every Account holder a free Cloud Space of about 10gb where you can store your files and contacts. Now tell me, how many contacts would you save that would exhaust your 10gb space.

– Firstly, move your contacts from SIM, Phone to Email
