http://forums.androidcentral.com – Hi everyone I have an issue I'd like to share with you and would really appreciate some feedback on how to solve it. I am trying to backup my contacts on my phone most importantly to note is that they are not Google contacts how do I backup my contacts so that when I get another phone (the same one that I have now) they will back up to that phone. My phone right now is acting kinda funny so I just want to get a replacement but I want to make sure that all of my photos videos and contacts transferred over to the new phone what is the best way to accomplish this. Where exactly is the Google clou (HowTos)
