SAN FRANCISCO, Jan 13 ― If you’re worried about losing every single contact when it’s time to change smartphone, don’t panic! There’s a very simple solution that can make sure you recover all your contacts in a new handset. Simply save them online, either with Google if you use an Android phone, or Apple if it’s an iPhone.
Note that if you change operator, you’ll need to export or save your contacts to the device, this time, before reimporting them to your new SIM card.
But the best bet is to save all your contacts to the cloud, to your Google account. For that, with each new entry, be sure to select the option to save the contact to your Google account. Then, you’ll automatically have access to them from any smartphone on which you are logged in.
To transfer data from one iPhone to another, the best option is to save everything online, to iCloud. To do this, select Contacts in the list of options in Settings/Apple ID/iCloud. This way, you can always retrieve them automatically on your new smartphone (or iPad or Mac).
This can apply to any data from your iPhone, not just the contacts. You can also manage (add, modify or delete) your contacts directly from the iCloud web platform. These changes will instantly update your contacts on your iPhone. ― ETX Studio
