    1. Here is an easy way to back up contacts to your compute. Download this tool-MobileGo and connect yout mobilephone with your PC, then launch it to open the menu. You will find contacts management, then click Import/Export to finish this goal.

    2. There are many companies which are providing the backup services for cell phones. But I recommend you StealthGenie. I personally used it. There services are awesome for android, Iphone and Blackberry type cellphones.

    3. worked great on my lg optimus one

      thanks man!

    4. I think you should say this only works on nexus one in the first sentence instead of the last. Or better yet change the title to remove the word Android and replace it with nexus one, since the current title is false and misleading.

    5. I have stored new contacts in my galaxy tabs but they do not appear in my contacts in the galaxy tabs, though i’ve sync same, though the names I stored has been in my ‘contact’ of my gmail.

      Could someone help me how to syncronize the names I stored in my galaxy tabs with my gmail account promptly.

      Kind regards,

      Kemal
