Surely, like any average user, you change your phone every time two years or so. If you change phones, do the same: enter your Google account> go to Google Play> download the usual apps, but there is still one thing that seh almost never does and that unfortunately Cell phones are not activated by default. One of the main problems when switching phones is the contacts as we have an ugly habit of storing them on the SIM card or worse, the phone’s internal memory.
And what should you do now on your Android phone if you haven’t already? Start saving once and for all contacts in your Google account. Not because it’s easier, not because of the benefits it has, but because of a security issue. And why am I telling you this? Well, read on, I’ll explain it to you.
Saving your contacts on Google is real health
Imagine you have All your contacts are saved on the SIM card or in the internal memory of your mobile phone. What if your phone breaks and you have to change your cell phone? Well, you will do what everyone does: open Facebook and let your friends know that you have lost all contacts and that they will send you their number by message. Is that useful? Is that efficient? I’m telling you that no, because when the 900 people you had on your agenda send you their cell phones then you have to place them one by one to put them in your terminal.
Wouldn’t it be easier to upload your contacts to Google Contacts? If you know what is happening to your current phone, if you know what is happening to your current phone, can you use Gmail to restore it? It is a service free, unlimited, secure and really useful. If you still can’t do it on your phone, it is already taking some time. You just need to change the location where you save the contacts when you register a new one. As simple as that!
If you don’t want to go through the google framework, you can always have one Back up your contacts with vCard files. These can be generated from the settings of your favorite contacts app, but have the disadvantage that they are not automatically synchronized and that you have to be aware of this. Backups regularly. You choose.
