How do I sync my contacts?

Syncing, importing, and organizing your Android contacts

Your contacts are automatically synced when you first turn on your GoFone and sign into a Google Account, so make sure to add your Google Account to your GoFone/GoTab. Any existing contacts from that account are synced with your device.After that, all your contacts automatically stay in sync, whether you make changes on your phone, from another device, or from any Web browser. The contact information on your device is also available in Gmail, Google Talk, Messenger, Phone, and other apps where it’s useful. As you add contacts from different sources, they are synced automatically across all the places you need them.Since contacts are automatically synced, if you delete a Google contact from your device, it will also be deleted from Google Contacts. 


 

Contacts Account: Gmail

You’ll only need to sign in with your Google Account on your GoFone or GoTab and all your contacts will be right there in the People app  .

 


 

Contacts Account: iCloud

You can transfer your contacts from iCloud to GoFone as follows:

  1. Go to “Settings”, then “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”, then “Accounts” where you should see “iCloud” listed. Open iCloud and turn on the toggle for “Contacts” which will prompt you to “Merge” your device’s contacts with iCloud.
  2. In a web browser on your desktop computer, go to icloud.com, login with your Apple ID and click on “Contacts”. In the lower-left corner, click on the wheel, “Select All”. Once selected, click the wheel again and choose “Export vCard”.
  3. In a web browser, go to gmail.com, click on the “Mail” button in the top left and select “Contacts”. You should see a list of your Gmail contacts.
  4. Now click the “More” button above the contacts list and select “Import”. Select “Choose File” and select your saved vCard file. When importing is complete, Gmail will display the number of contacts imported.
  5. Finally, delete any duplicates by using the “Find & merge duplicates” function under the “More” button above the contacts list.

 

Contacts in iTunes

If your contacts are stored locally or you’re using an account other than iCloud or Gmail then one way to transfer your contacts to Android is through iTunes on your Windows or Mac computer.

  1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer.
  2. Open iTunes and navigate to the device screen by clicking “iPhone” or “iPad” in the top right-hand corner.
  3. Open the Info tab and select the box next to “Sync Contacts with”.
  4. Choose “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu and enter your Google account credentials when prompted.
  5. Wait for your iPhone or iPad to sync.
