    I recently lost my phone and ended up purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime through another carrier. I have an ASUS laptop with Chrome and Windows 10. Is it possible to sync my contacts from my laptop to my Android Lollipop Samsung phone??? Thank you for your input.

    export your PC files as a .vcf and then import the .vcf file to the phone

    or, on the laptop, sync your contacts up to Google and then on the phone download from Google.
    this would be my preference.... you should always keep your contacts as "google contacts" and not store them on the "phone".

    you already know the reason why......... they went poof!

    Had you never stored any contact as a "phone contact", the new phone would have restored all the contacts as soon as it was registered and you logged back into Google.
