VIDEO: Android – Contacts Import

Make sure your contacts are all “synced” with your Google account.

If you’re adding a contact, make sure you save it as a Google contact, otherwise, if you reset your phone, or get a new android… Your contacts will not be there.

Here, I walk you through exporting your “phone” contacts and then importing them to Google.  (I’m using the Samsung Showcase i500 running Android 2.3)

*NOTE: if you have facebook synced into your contacts, remove the facebook contacts first, before the export.
