    Sign in with your Gmail or Contact adapter account and ensure sync is active. If no contacts show, you likely saved them to a "phone only account".

    If you don't like the idea of storing your contacts with Big Bro Google, you can save your contacts as a CSV or vCard and import them after a factory reset.

    The contacts app in newer versions of Android have a backup tool for both contacts and SMS.
