How To Backup Up Your Contacts To Google On Any Android Phone by NaijaTechGuy(m): 7:27am On Feb 24, 2017
It's quite unfortunate that most people don't really know the features of the devices they use. Sometimes your device may get missing and all you can think of is your contacts and pictures.




Google can help you automatically back everything up. Once you sign in with a new device, everything including your contacts is moved to your new device.
Here's how to do it :

Turn on your data connection
Open Your Contacts Menu

Select Import/Export


Select The Location Of The Contacts You Want To Backup


Tap Next And Select The Google Account You Want To Backup The Contacts To



Tap Next And You're Done. Keep Your Internet Connection On For 10 more Minutes Before Turning It Off

if u didn't sync with google,it's something you need to do periodically and not since 2015 as you have said
femi4:
You don't need to sync periodically. Just put the syn switch ON and thats all. We have been using it since the days of jelly bean 2012/2013
okay sir,I understand you know too much.

Backup the contacts first before you can see the VCard file. Make sure you have Internet access to upload the file to the Google cloud storage. When uploaded it would show on your Google Drive app.
