It becomes almost irritating to keep all these contacts managed. Another problem faced by users is about Backup of contacts. Often when you’re a changing a ROM or updating your Software it is necessary to backup your contacts. I’ve listed two easy Methods to Backup/Sync your contacts on your Android smartphone, so that they can be easily Restored when required:

Method 1: Using Google Contacts

This is method is suggested by Google for users to manage their contacts. While saving any contact you get an option to Save it on phone memory or Sync it to your Google account. By selecting Google Account, all your contacts are stored onto the cloud server(in your Gmail Contacts List) and even if you buy a new phone, you simply have to login to that same Google Account from the new device to Sync your contacts in the new phone. It’s a pretty easy way to Backup and Restore your Contacts!

However, sometimes the phone fails to Sync the Contacts from the Google servers. If you face such a problem simply make sure Auto-Sync is ticked in Settings >> Accounts & Sync.
