    How to backup the contacts in my Samsung duos android phone?

    I use Samsung duos android phone and I want to save my contacts to my SIM card or a file I can copy on my PC and copy it on other android devices, because I want to buy a new android phone. So how can I do this backup?

    Hello Guest,
    This option is available in the phone itself and you need not download any third party apps. Go to your Contact list and tap for its options. Now select "More" at the lower left corner of the screen. Another popup will appear. Select "Import/Export". Now you will see many options. Choose the last one i.e. "Export to Sdcard". When you tap on it, a box showing the copy progress will be displayed on screen. After its done, you can go to sdcard and locate the folder "Other". The backup of your current contact list is saved as a .vcf file something with the name 0001.vcf. You can use it to copy from PC to other android Phone etc. or it can be sent through Bluetooth as well. Thanks and do visit again.

    Hey

    You can back up in two ways :

    -->>one is connect your phone via usb and start samsung kies-->>then backup your contact

    -->>2nd is open your contacts-->>tap on options menu-->>then tap on import/export-->>then tap on export to sd card

    this will back up your contact to your sd card

    when you want to restore it just tap on import from sd card

    Thats it!!

    Thank you
