Default Phone Contacts

Silly me decided to do a hard reset of my phone assuming that the contacts it uses were from my sim as I never physically copied them across to the X10.

Seems they are not, meaning any new ones I created (thinking they were saved on my sim) are gone .

Just wondering what you guys use to store or manage your contacts on. Is there an app or setting on the X10 to save new contacts to the sim instead of the phone by default.

SIM cards can't hold many contacts, hence the default save. Just back them up to your SIM or SD card though Phonebook -> Menu -> More -> Backup, much better than using an App in my opinion

Thanks for the replies...a lesson learnt for me.

I just keep mine syncronized with my GMail account. It even remembers the photos for each contact.

Once set up, it does it all automatically.

As wooks said just set your phone to sync with either google or Sony's servers and you can chose when it does it from every day to 1 week, set and forget.

Am having a bit of trouble syncing with my gmail account. I've got over 100 contacts I want to save but each time I try it syncs for over 15 mins and freezes and only 36 contacts appear in my gmail account.

Any help on what boxes I need to tick etc would be appreciated.

Try Sony Ericssons sync system I have over 200 contacts including work and social and it takes around 20 seconds to sync and then you can open Sonys PC Companion and there are all your contacts ect.
