Default Where are Contacts accessed from

Hi

when I select Contacts and the list comes up, where are they taken from, the SIM, Phone or SD Card?

Thanks

Daniel

It depends where you have them saved.

Chances are they are on your phone, and automatically saved to your Gmail account as well. So make sure you know your Gmail account just in case something ever happens to your phone. That way you can recover your contacts.

If you have a SIM card then you CAN save your contacts to your SIM card but the method you will use to do it depends on what kind of phone you have. Typically you can Contacts/People>Menu>More>SIM Management>Select all> Export /Copy to SIM.

If you choose you can save them to your SD card as a V-card file. It won’t read it from your memory card but you can import them from a backup V-card file should you ever need to recover your contacts. Not a bad idea.

There are a lot of methods you can use to backup your phone. I write about a TON of them (including the ones already mentioned) at How to Backup and Reset an Android Phone.

Enjoy your backed up contacts and DON’T forget to backup your Pictures to your SD card as well.

The reply to this question is the same I gave in another thread. You can choose what you want to see, and where you want them. (sync with google is so easy... )
